From The Human Heart

Money can bless a family or it can desecrate a family. Prescription drugs can heal an ailment or they can abuse the body. A knife in the hands of a chef can create eloquent meals of delight or in the hands of an abortionist can destroy precious life in the womb. Sex can be a blessed union of a husband and wife that procreates children or it can be a rapist’s violation that ruins a person’s innocence. Guns operated by a soldier can protect a person from evil or a gun operated by a terrorist can end innocent human presence. That which is meant for good, can also be used for evil.
The variable in all these circumstances is not the various items mentioned above, but the human heart. In other words, out of the same heart comes: praise and cursing, love and hate, good and evil. What this means is that evil is not present in knives, prescription drugs, sex, guns, and so forth, but rather, evil is from within, from the human heart.
The human condition is such that only a radical confrontation of the sinful heart is sufficient – death to the sinful nature by Christ-crucified. It is through perpetual death of the sinful nature – returning to baptism in repentance and faith – that there is any hope for reasonable peace, love, and service amongst mankind.
