I’m sad to admit that I struggle with a part of the Churches teaching. I know the correct teaching of the Church on a certain issue and I believe the teaching is authentic because I truly believe in the Church. I even think the teaching is morally superior. Given my situation however, this teaching has come into conflict with me and I have not found the strength to follow it. I’m like the man who Jesus told to go and sell all that he had and follow him and he walked away saddened.
What can a person do in this situation? I genuinely can not find the strength to do the right thing in this area of my life. I want to but I fail miserably to do so. There is conflict in me such as when Paul says he did what he did not want to do. I’m really stuck here and I’m miserable about it because I love Christ and I love His Church.
