Nope, all desire for holy passion is given by God. God enlivens all things and without God there is nothing. By myself I could do nothing, but with God... Everything.
IDK, your the "psychologist" you tell me. Why do so many want to play the role of psychologist? Your wisdom is nothing compared to God's.
Who am I?
I depend on God. You do too, for you would not endure if he were so ashamed as to disdain you.
The reason evil cannot be immediately is because the good must be extracted from the bad. The impurity must leave and the essence of what God wants will be refined.
It is the whole process of nature. Nature is perfect because it is in the process of becoming perfect. The process is beautiful, and so is the end product.
24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. 27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ 28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ 29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”
