A consequence of having a human nature.

By nature, we are already loving God more than ourselves. Our only choice is whether we will live in accordance with what we are.

    Since we have fallen nature which disorders the appetites, why is it the present continuous “already loving God”, as opposed to the contingent “ought to love God”?

    I did struggle with that line, but I left as I originally wrote it because it conveys the idea that the one who does not love God is doingso in virture of a failure to be human. Insofar as we are loving as human beings, we are loving God above all- and we can never wholly destroy this motion of nature, no matter how much it is distorted.

    I don’t disagree with “ought to”. It conveys another complimentary aspect of what I was speaking about.
