I Dont Believe Everything In The Bible Is Perfectly Of God... Example:

Colossians 1:21 "This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions".

The part I do not agree with is, "....separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions".
Before I came to Christ I was not evil. I have seen and experienced evil in other people. Before my salvation I had no Spirit of God living in me, but there also was no evil living in me. There is the Spirit of God. The spirit of man. The spirit of evil. I was just a lost soul following the spirit of man. The bible and it's authors, at times, make life seem so black and white. It is not. Life is full of gray and gray areas.

Maybe it means those who knew God and then made a choice to live without them and have evil thoughts and do evil things. Because sin is not sin unless you know it's sin and consciously do it. Many grey areas as u say.

hey, i didnt think about that! Good idea !
