When he says, “I will catch you!”, your eyebrows go up as you realize there’s an entire domain hidden from these little fellows. “Sorry. My responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.” The deceitfulness of human nature (Jeremiah 17:9) is something pure logic and common sense will never be able to grasp. And guess what’s even more frightening! That some day there’s a machine that will figure it out and deliberately use this ability to plot something against man.
The film “I, Robot” has a scene at the end where Sonny the robot blinks it’s eye indicating a double thought had been conceived in its circuits. You say one thing, but do the other. Well, the deceivers and politicians do that without blinking the eye. By the way, such behavior is characteristic to grown-ups but unknown to little children who, as we know, are very sincere and straightforward in their pursuits. Therefore, we can see that man develops this feature in the process of time. Does it mean that he acquires it on the go? I doubt. More likely, it sits there deep within since the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden. And when a toddler grows up and becomes self-conscious and gives in to ambition (discerning good and evil) his sinful nature is revealed. What is the cure then? Are we in the position to change our own nature? If we could, it would be jumping over our own shadow. We cannot do it. But there is a way! This wickedness inside our being must be crucified and put to death through Christ, the Second Adam. It is the Redemption of man by God, not from ourselves.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
(2 Corinthians 5:17)
