I’ve been reading on the Church’s view on evil and I have a question that is never even written about in the Catholic sources I found.
Why would a specific person choose evil (or rather say no to goodness)? The reason for this can not be free will. That is only a reason why people are allowed to choose to say no to goodness. Another reason often talked about is being influenced bad evil demon or peiople. You still have to make your own decision. And it can’t be for a psychological reason since here I am asking about choosing evil in your heart and not about having psychological problems, eg mental health problems.
Why would someone choose evil according to Catholic doctrine/tradition? Why would JP2 choose Jesus whereas someone else would choose evil? How would the Catholic tradition view this?
