Spiral of Violence ~ MP3
Richard Rohr seeks to open doors of understanding regarding the traditionally-labeled sources of evil: the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Evil needs to appear in the disguise of being something good, moral, and righteous, which allows us to do evil actions without having guilt feelings or self-doubt. If we don’t recognize and stop evil in “the world” (that is, systemic evil) it will bubble up with great force through the spiral of violence into personal actions of evil.
Richard offers this discussion as a tool for discerning evil on all levels so that we all might make appropriate responses before we are caught up in an uncontrollable spiral.
