The strategy of motivating a person by God is as follows. First, through temptations, man becomes infected with desires and vices, and then, by limiting these desires, he receives the energy necessary for the service of life. Vice need then, to, limiting his, obtain energy.
It is dangerous to protect a person from Vice from the outside. You will protect him from the lesser evil, and he will be the victim of the greater one. The lesser evil protects man from the greater one. A person can save himself from Vice only, an attempt to save him from the outside and by force will only aggravate the situation.
The essence of vices and sins is to make a person run along the circle of his vices, grow weak, fall and resign himself to reality, thus overcoming his arrogance. Where, having resigned himself to reality, the person falls on the ground, the grain of his soul will germinate and, finally, that person will start doing what he had to do from the very beginning, i.e., start growing.
From a pragmatic point of view, games and other vices separating the chaff from the grain are useful for the system. One less, more for the rest. God will punish those who have no love in them by taking time from them. On the other hand, everyone knows movies about zombie apocalypses, and these scenarios have nothing good about them. Some sound balance is needed.
All sins and virtues the closer to a person, the stronger and more significant. Love begins with love for yourself and your family and then to the far. Lying begins with lying to yourself and your loved ones. In other words, he who does not love himself and his loved ones, he who lies to himself and his loved ones, will be the first to go to hell, because his sin is the most terrible.
You can sin and indulge in Vice as much as you like, provided that you work and pay for your sins. As long as you're useful, we're willing to tolerate your piggery. However, if you refuse to pay for your sins and vices, it will be a mortal sin for which we will turn your life into hell.
The Montaigne Essays read that the mere pursuit of goodness with joy and inspires the soul. The chief virtues of the human soul are contempt for fear, contempt for suffering and pain, contempt for death.
Freedom of will is that one can choose whether there is humility in one's heart or not. Where there is humility, there is love. Where there is no humility, there is no love, but there are vices, fears and evil.
