The person who claims to never have, or have had, an evil intention, is a person who may not be honest about the storms their heart may occasionally experience.
They may not be aware of what their human nature is, despite their best efforts in keeping order in their heart, mind and efforts.
The person who Today claims to never have or allow an 'evil' intention cross over their heart, is someone who may not be in touch too deeply with the reality of such abysmal currents churning within themselves.
The human condition is inescapable of such things; some of us may be thinking too highly of ourselves.
Not trying to sound negative or pessimistic, but simply realistic and soberly speaking.
Some claim never to think, entertain or do evil.
These are most diluted.
What is evil?
For some, evil is considered good, and that which is good is called evil by others.
Many people do not understand how this could be nor can any swaths of the informed public agree with a clear definition of evil.
Some consider killing human life as evil, with no justification.
Others agree, but justify capital punishment, saying it is justice.
Yet, evil's definition cannot reach mass consensus.
This is why such teachings as the following only speaks to certain hearts on earth, not the mass consensus.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
- Luke 6: 41-42
