";strong desire,"; has a bad sense in the only passage (Romans 1:27) in which it is found in the NT, but Matheson (Epictetus i. p. 31 f.) has shown that in Stoic philosophy the word is neutral, and that if in certain passages (e.g. i. 4. 1, iii. 22. 13) Epictetus speaks of the necessity of removing or postponing it altogether, that is because he is addressing those who are still under discipline, learning how to avoid what is evil, but not yet fully attracted towards what is good. See also Epict. ii. 13. 7, iii. 9. 18 and 22; and CR xxxi. (1917), p. 172 f.
