Tyranny of Desire - Maxon Mani


Maxon brings us another insightful illustration about life through use of story and narrative. He takes us to Gen 3 to propose that battle for our mind is the battle for our intellect. Our intellect is changed by the perspectives that society pushes on us. Perspectives of others, not God’s, eventually corrupts our will to decide.  Our corrupted will to decide becomes our warden. Tells us exactly what to do even if we don’t want to. It leaves behind a trail of victims. 

Everything and all things corrupts our will to decide. When we will do anything to fulfil our desire we multiply our victims. We harm those around us in pursuit of what we want. God is out of our mind. Adam and Eve decided against God and the generations that came after them.

Everything we are seeing and learning will eventually lead to the corruption of our will to desire for good and Maxon shows that this applies to all areas of life including matters of gender identity and sexuality.
