Man proves to be without strength of will particularly when it is necessary to practice true Christian good - even though he might desire this good. The holy apostle Paul speaks of this weakness of will when he says: "For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds which I do not desire to do are what I am always doing" (Romans ). That is why Christ the Saviour said of man the sinner, "Whoever practices sin is the slave of sin" (John ) although to the sinner, alas, serving sin often seems to be freedom while struggling to escape its net appears to be slavery.
