Philosophy Wire: Wickedness. Evil. Virtue. Will. [Christianity = The DIFFICULT path]


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-02-09]: Hannah Arendt said that to do great evil one does not need to be someone special. Even the most common people can become the biggest criminals. The case of Nazis showed this clearly. It needs strong will to be good. And the lack of will (free will) is the beginning of the road or evil. One only has to just surrender to his passions to become bad. One must make true effort to stay good. This is something all those who speak with ease against religion with the logic that it is chosen by the people for relief need to remember. No, Christianity does not teach the EASY path. It teaches the DIFFICULT path! You feel nothing but relief when you know and truly understand that you have to be in a constant struggle against evil.
