"The world exists because we chose wrong. We chose rebellion, to be our own gods to ourselves. We still choose it, which is why every step back in the direction of God is lined with pain. If we were to get every worldly thing we want, this would push us more in the direction of evil. We would be more and more lost; further and further from God. Finding God is like being weaned off a terrible drug. It hurts. At the other end though, is wholeness."
