Evil and Good would have and will exist with or with out God. Both are human nature.
Are people born good and evil,,,the idea of the bad seed?
With a Child is it nurture of nature?
Those who venture to raise children have the knowledge of success and bitter defeat ?

What a piece of work is a man,
how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties,
in form and moving how express and admirable,
in action how like an angel,
in apprehension how like a god.

the problem with evil and hate is that they only exists in humans. every human has some evil in them and every human hates something. evil and hate are not the problem, the problems are us humans that bring them both to life.

We are all born in sin and evil is a part of our nature. As we learn this. we then can take control of our selves and pray to God to deliver us from evil and let us not be lead into temptation to do something that we know is wrong. Our own lusts are our worst enemies. Prayer is a good way to overcome a persistent sin and if we continue to turn away from it, eventually it will go away. Good things come by faith and by hoping for good and resisting bad we can overcome the evil that so easily besets us all. Resist and you will be glad you did. A good outcome must be strived for, and if you do something wrong, just repent of it and learn how not to ever do it again. This is how we can control our lives and not be controlled by undesirable forces.

your god says we our all born in sin only by the acts of two others(adam and eve). that is the biggest judgment of anyone that can ever be done because he is judging all men and women as sinners when they are born from what, according to your bible, only two people did. remember thou shalt not judge others but your god judges everyone as sinners from the day they are born only from the acts of only two others.

Oh, but we choose to be delivered from sin. If we repent and call upon the name of the lord Jesus, he can deliver us from our distresses and our wrongdoings will be forgiven from his sight. If we are his followers, we can be lead away from the devil who is out to destroy us. The spirit of sin (the devil) is in the world like a wolf seeking to devour sheep. Jesus is like a good shepherd who leads his flock into green pasture and if they listen to him they will be saved from eternal torment for going astray into bad living.

not to be rude but if your dad bangs your mom and you are conceived,,, how in the heII did you choose to be born into sin. a baby should be born sinless for they have no ideal what sin is. now i can agree as we grow older we can choose to sin or not to sin but until we know what sin is, we should be sinless. your god judges a baby that has no clue what a sin is as a sinner. just my opinion
