I believe we are all born with the capability of either.
The bible says we are created in His image. That is God's image, everything that God created is good. However, when sin (disobedience) entered mankind, through Adam and Eve, all generations after have this tendency to sin by nature. So, we are good in essence with a natural tendency to sin. And we can't get rid of the natural tendency to sin. It is through Christ it is that we can be free from sin. We can be set free from the bondage of sin. A person can be totally renewed and transformed and become the way God intended it to be (a painful process at times, but full of reward, satisfaction, peace, and joy)
This is the first time I've read something about God and understand clearly. Wish you would answer more of my questions.
That was really harsh.
oops wrong comment
YIN-YANG. Aside from How A Soul Is Incepted, Here's The Emanated-Generated Sequence Into Creation: -- ALL Comes From NOTHING (the 0 & 1, Binary). Nothing Is PreEXistence - "WithOut Beginning Or Ending" - The Moment It Chooses To EXpress ITSELF, it Does So Via It's Trinitial sSS - "Desire - Intent - Will". The First Appearance of The sSelf Into Creation Is Called The First Motion (Initial Impetus), Which EXpresses "All Potential," or The Negative Aspect (Pole) of sSelf. Hue-mans call this "Evil." (There Is No Evil Nor Good... Ut Is Perception Only). The Intent of This Manifested self-Aspect Is To Achieve All-Potency, Which Gives An EXudate Called "The Increasement" or "The More" In That Process. To Achieve This, It Must Move From A "horizontal" (Neg/'Evil') To A "Ver tical" (Pos/'Good') Position. This Is Called "Rising/Lifting," A Dual Process, InterConnected (sSelf). Nether Evil Nor Good Will Release The Soul From The Creation... They Are Equal & Opposite... But All ALWAYS Begins From The Negative('Evil') Magnetic-Feminine State & Rises (/is Lifted, Dually: Effort & Grace) Into The Positive('Good') Electric-Masculine State... This Is the lower self Unioning With It's Higher Self... The "Two Halves Which Make OneWhole" (Yin-Yang Sphere)... This Is The Third SELF... A New Birth From The Unioning Of Both The 'Evil' & 'Good'... Which Is Perfection (Pure = CLEAR). This NewBirth Appears Fully Formed (After It's 'Gestation' Period) & Is InCorruptible. ... This Process Is Called "The Cycle Of The sS-Elf", & It's Successful "Denoument" Is Called "The Great Mystery," The Immutable Process. Many Lifetimes Are Require To Achieve This. Nobody is Forced To "Denoue." Now, please Know that 'Evil' Is NOT... this Is The Black Womb Feminine Chaos NonLinear Aspect That "Brings" (Births) All New Things/States/Entities InTo Th Creation System. Without Which, All Motion Would Cease, Collapse & Disappear. NonLinear Precedes Linear- "NON-State Precedes A-State." ... You Are "Here."
were born both we do as we choose though
We are all born with the capacity for love -- to give and receive it -- because in us we have souls which are of God. But at the same time we are animals with the tendency to be selfish, to seek pleasure, to hoard and be greedy, to dominate and try to bring the competition down -- things considered evil because they bring ruin to society. Whether we grow in our capacity for love, or become indifferent or even hateful of others depends on how much we ourselves have been watered by love as we grow and mature. So treat your fellows with love so that we may grow in it.
I believe abuse plays a role in some cases, but it's never an excuse to abuse another. Especially a child, that takes a whole new definition of evil Society does impact these things rather most believe or not
i believe that we are born innocent and not good...i heard this on this site once and i agree with it...
"Innocent" Is A ReFlective State. Take a newborn baby... deposit it in a deep woods or jungle. Innocence Is A Negative State/Condition ('InCapable'). Read my comment (please)... Creation Evolves In This Manner: "Innocent - Sophisticated - Sophisticated-Innocence" (3rd State, Unioned). ... See "Nuclear Evolution," Christopher Hills for more.
Nobody born with goodness or evil.Its we human being chose to live with.
I think that most of us are born good and are show evil. Just my perception!
What the frak does evil mean?
when you do something to others that you do not want done to you.
