Paul states in Romans 7:21 “I find then a law that when I would do good, evil is present with me” when you really look into that statement and cross-reference it with your current living, you will see that evil does exist, as if we have our own personal demons trying to torment us.
Genesis 4:7 “If though doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?
And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire,
and thou shalt rule over him”

The woman who gossips maliciously and nags her family sees the seed coming toward her, and she knows that’s not really her.

The teenage girl who got pregnant and had an abortion because she feared her parents’ reaction holds back tears as she sees that picture because she knows that’s not her....
