We, as these patients, must acknowledge this dangerous tactic. How can we avoid being led to believe that we are following God's will when we are actually doing nothing? We must not allow ourselves onto that "safest road to Hell" but instead, we should continue to stay away from the small temptations that could be dangerous.
What small temptations do I fall into? I've realized that I slowly start to rationalize behaviors. I may not actually participate in them, but I have begun to see them as things that "anyone could do." Why does this matter? There is a definite right and wrong. Sometimes, we can't see the a clear-cut answer, but I think that we have to at least try. If a behavior is wrong, then it is wrong for everyone. This is difficult, but I think that it is true. When I begin to rationalize, what I am really saying is that even though it might be wrong for others, somehow it is okay for me to do.
