Prince myshkin

I don't think weakness is a problem, nor do I think his acute awareness of his own sin, even in the presence of greater sins of others, is a failure to flip tables. He doesn't speak with authority because he's not Christ! Sufficient to stand yet free to fall we mortals will always be on this earth- a reverent self-doubt is fitting for sanctity. I think prince Myshkin's mercy speaks volumes, and in his weakness as a holy fool, Christ is strong in him. My power is made perfect in weakness.
