The past few months, I've been working with people who have made decisions that caused great failure and sorrow in their life. In each case, they knew the right thing to do, blew through the warning signs, and ignored their conviction. Hey, I'm not perfect. I've done some of the same things myself. My question is why?

Why do we ignore conviction and decide to do something that would cause so much regret? Why do we sense the slippery slope and still inch our way forward? Really, I'm asking, "why?"

I know the church answer - our flesh rebels against God. I want to hear your opinion though. Why do we ignore our gut and do wrong? Selfish? Blinded? Impulsive?
