From whence this evil?

Unde hoc malum? A great little Latin phrase for big pressing problem: from whence this evil?

“Where does this wrongdoing come from? What is its wellspring, the source of its ongoing prevalence and power? The doctrine of original sin is, if nothing else, and intellectually serious attempt to answer such questions.”

Alan Jacobs, Original Sin

I’ve been thinking about how one lives in the church in light of the pressing reality that we will continue to sin in this life and we will continue under the recurring or incurred harm of self and neighbor.
