GOOD OR EVIL- the choice is yours. every deliberate act, good or evil ,us preceded by a thought. Sowing positive and virtues thoughts reaps good fruitage. conversely if seeds of selfish are allowed to germinate in mind, a bumper crop of evil is likely to result. thus, it could be said that man is a good or as evil as he chooses to be.. what do think?

So the answer to the question is, we ourselves, make ourselves good or evil. We choose! However, we must also recognize that when we are born, we do not know what is good or evil. So what others teach us can influence us greatly. Later we may come to our own realization or by being exposed to something else that what we were taught was incorrect. God also may choose to open our eyes to other possibilities than what we were taught. But sooner or later we will have enough information to see the difference between good and evil and in the end the choice is ours unless we die before. Example: a young child. Then we must later come to life again and be given a chance to choose. God is fair, God is just!

The answer to that question is US. Yes, you and me. Because the person makes the decision which way to go--good or evil. These options are always there proposed to us, to our minds. Which way we decide, we do and we get.

As far as I am concerned, I think it is the Internet or the computer that make me feel so good. In my daily life, I think I can not be short of the help of the computer,which plays a very important role in my life. With th eInternet, I can do a lot of thins. I can make friends online. Besides, I still can make money on the Internet. What the most important is that I can try my best to learn on the Internet . I enjoy a lot of fun here.

God made us for his own emaged. He made has perfect., but he give us also knowledge to know what is good and what is right., our enemy uses money to make us evil., they lets us thought that we are useless without money and power., money is one of our weaknesses to become evil..

Good and Evil are one in the same, both viewed as positives and negatives. We are capable of evil and many struggle to become good. Humanity is naturally evil but our 'laws' are evidence of our struggle to be just/good.

I agree, one can only be good or evil, on our own making and decisions. But, sometimes your evil side can help you out of trouble. TATA.

Yes, I believe we choose whether we want to be good or evil. Every action we make is a choice. Every word we speak is something we can control. We wake up each morning with the chance to do good, and the chance to do wrong. None of us are perfect, but we can decide to improve ourself, and think wisely about every choice we make.

the whole world is in the power of the evil one. the temptation is being their always. he attacks as through our weaknesses. and because of this, we make angry and we cannot control to our-self until we can do things which is not good.

sometimes when we do bad things to others we says it is just and right because we are only given back to them what they have given to us.. But one thing we have to learn that if someone who do bad things against us, let God will give discipline unto them..

It's our human nature that makes us evil. People kill for their own gain because of their needs. These are people who goes beyond the normal actions expected of a man. His human nature had already corrupted him ceasing him control over himself.

actions speak louder than words as they say. other easily judge trough our action the way we act unto them whether it is good or bad impact to them they can only tell. but sometimes we must sensitive to a people surround us .

evil may reach into our home thruogh the media. video game television programs, and movies of ten to glorify violence and acts of vengeance. even regular doses of world or local news may desensitize us to the evils human suffering and anguish. with all these factors shaping our attitudes and actions, some may reason that they are not blame for their evil acts.

Basically good and evil are man-made. Man created the hamlets (basic principles of society) who obey. These hamlets are inspired by our society and must be for us to represent a set of moral rule which should not be violated, in theory, but of course man can violate these rules. Evil is for most a deviation from normal moral imposed by society. We are not born bad or good but shapes our lives, the smallest thing that occurred in childhood can affect us, we are a product of action and decision that occur in our life + living environment, society (but others break this vicious circle in society and environment that suits you and manage your life a little more than those who remain in the initial social circle, I want to say that the company where you are born and who his lifetime has the effect of shape you get make exactly the same position with other members of society, I looked in a village society and the effect induced by others on a person, we concluded that the person has the same value as everyone else even state that the others can manipulate people ). So a person is manipulated environmental events in his life, his intellectual capacity is not entirely science looks on people's perceptions of right and wrong but by psychology we can assume how a person came to deviate from society but the hamlets as someone important enough to change the value system which for us is so bad for him to be good.
