God gave us the capacity to sin. Free Will allows to make choices, to choose God’s Will for us as our own choice. Or we can choose to act selfishly for our ends.
Transformation begins when we see the damage that our selfish acts cause. Our selfish acts wound the Very Heart of God, when we hurt another human being. It is the knowledge of whom we are hurting, both human and Divine, that compel us to abandon our selfishness and embrace the Divine. We come to see the pain of brokenness when feel the pain of those we have hurt.
