I feel we are born ignorant, life is to teach us good, "evil" is simply the lack of understanding and exposure to good. I know many feel this is a rather shallow goody goody attitude that would be dropped by the first major trauma in a persons life, however I feel if taken into a deeper consideration..its far truer than a simple statement than that of we are born evil and die much the same.
Well... humans were created good by nature... "very good" in fact. But by seeking to be "as gods," we rejected our proper position... The result is we have a degree of innate moral sense, but our nature is evil - fallen from perfection...
We suppress the truth "since what may be known about God is plain to [us]... For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that [we] are without excuse. For although [we] knew God, [we] neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but [our] thinking became futile and [our] foolish hearts were darkened. Although [we] claimed to be wise, [we] became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. [We] exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worship and serve created things rather than the Creator - who is forever praised."
There is a King. Believing is Seeing. Seek the King!
