Why are there bad people in the world?

A rough life will lead to a black heart to others and not caring what boundaries they cross. Whether its from greed to murder....its their sad version of "survival of the fittest" or "control" of their version of reality.Sadly people will use the "Satan" excuse instead of owning up to their own pathetic decisions.

We were born into a sinful world which is govern by satan and his followers and the only hope we have is the grace of God. Set your sight and heart in God and he'll protect you. No evil will come your way.

I know there can be "bad" people in the world, but exactly what do you mean by "bad"? If you are referring to the shooting thay recently happened at the school, he was mentally disabled. That is one reason people do weird things. Or if you are referring to suicide, people become so depressed that they cannot take this world anymore. I wish I could anwser this question better, but I'm afraid you will have to be more specific.

If there were no bad people, then how would we be able to recognize, honor, reward, and love the good ones. Everyone would be good, and therefore, the same. Thus degrading the good people to normal ones. No one would be unique. The good people would have nothing to correct. I believe that life is a test, and God is going through the people of the world and figuring out which ones would go to Heaven, and which to Hell. Then again I could be wrong. But I don't care. This is what I believe, not other people. You can believe what you like. That's the beauty of America.

Are you saying that people only turn good when they do good things? If so, I respectively disagree. I say that some "normal" people are actually good, they just don't have the opportunity to show it. Just like the "bad" people.

"If there were no bad people, then how would we be able to recognize, honor, reward, and love the good ones."

It's not like we HAVE to reward or honor every good person (Unless they already done something good of course!) I think it would be better for the world to be perfect than to have good guys beat or capture bad guys who already murder/rape/steal etc. and be rewarded or honored don't you think? But then again it would be kinda boring since bad decisions make good stories (Which is why many people watch the news).

Look bro, I am expressing my opinion. We obviously have two VERY different beliefs on this subject, and that's cool. But that was rude. You could have simply put "I strongly disagree.", and we could have civilly debated on this subject. Yet, for some reason you felt it neccessary to call me out and attempt to change As I stated in my answer, "This is what I believe, not other people." so please, if you have nothing that is even remotely civil to say, please GTFO my page. Have a nice day! :)

Well actually I kinda did at the beginning. I was only pointing out some flaws that could be helpful to you. So basically I was being more helpful than being an a**. So back to my question; Are you saying that people are unique and turn good only when they do good things?
Report as
In a sense. For example, if someone sees a person being mugged, and turns their back on the person because they don't know them, then I would qualify them as a bad person. But you may have completely different views. I can respect that, but it seemed that you were getting kind of rude and offended by what I stated as my original answer, and as for my later comment, I apologize. I get offended easily sometimes, and on top of that I'm bi-polar, so I get out of hand sometimes.
Report as
It's okay, I understand. :) haha. And sorry about you being bi-polar. But I don't really think they should be qualified as a bad person since it takes courage, but other than that you might be right. If he knew he could stop that guy (or at least he thinks he can) and didn't do anything about it, then maybe. Since alot of people would just stand there and say "Uh oh" lol. But I think the question posted above needs an answer that is a little more complicated than most of us think, so I think this is where we should call it quits. cool?

Because being bad, in part, is what made Michael Jackson's career as successful as it was. Bad sometimes has obvious benefits and ethical considerations go by the way side if they are great enough. It's not a question of "if" most of the time but rather "how much will it take."

Revelation 12:9 " So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him." This scripture proves that the evil in this world is from Satan and that's the reason for bad people in this world.

When u say bad im assuming u dont mean in a universal way, but more in a instinctive way, well the answer to that is that there are people who lack sympathy or have a fixed sense of right and wrong that is unaccepted or different than others, but they still have the instinctive nature of greed in many forms which is what leads them to actually carry out the actions.
Its always good to know that the way u see the world is very different from that of others, almost even makes u feel lonely that no one will ever view ideas and actions the same as you.

Several things:
"Mere oppression may make a wise one act crazy."-Ecclesiastes 7:7-People feel forced by circumstances to do what they otherwise would not do.
"The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil."-1 Timothy 6:10-People are willing to violate the rules when money is involved.
"Because sentence against a bad work has not been executed speedily, that is why the heart of the sons of men has become fully set in them to do bad."-James 1:14,15-All of us are susceptible to wrong thinking.
"He that is walking with wise persons will become wise, but he that is having dealings with the stupid ones will fare badly."-Proverbs 13:20-people do what they have no intention of doing, because of peer pressure.

It started when Adam And Eve let the devil tempt them. Ever since then. he has been controlling the world. Everything and anyone can be evil. Until Jesus comes again, this is how it is. Pray to Jesus to help you through it and not get influenced. :)

There is bad people because through one man sin entered the world (Romans 5:12)

Also, Satan and his Demons has been cast out to the perimeters of the earth and mankind is being influenced by the independent spirit of the world. (Revelation 12:12) The attitudes and disposition are outlined at 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

It's the way people view things in life. This affects the way you learn things through life. Whether your mentally disabled or just had a bad childhood experience. If you were treated badly when you were a child and you would be shown little to no sympathy, therefore, you will do the same. Children learn how to behave as they grow up (that's why you always see them play the monkey see monkey do game). It all depends on their environment and the people around them.

The Bible teaches that we inherited sin(Romans 5:12).Is this an excuse for all of the bad that has occurred & is being done on a global scale?The Bible, though penned under inspiration (just as a secretary has penned the words of a businessman) thousands of years ago, is still informative, gives answers to many questions, has practical advice for our day,& even tells us about our present times & the future to come!Utilize the Bible & you will find not only satisfying but logical answers.Other reasons why people act in ways they are aware that are bad can be found at: Ecclesiastes 7:7,1 Timothy 6:10,Ecclesiastes 8:11, &James 1:14,15.We must remember that as humans we have free will (1 Corinthians 10:13,& Proverbs 13:20).This is NOT to say that there doesn't exist persons with genuine mental health issues who may engage in erratic behavior.There exists the reality of Satan & his demons & their influence (1 John 5:19, Revelation 12:9,12).The Bible promises a wonderful future where bad people & wickedness on earth will not exist (Psalms 37: 9-11,29;Revelation 21:4;John 5:28,29).See John 17:3 & James 2:26 to see what we must do to be apart of this future!(www.jw.org)

Because it is the way of man to sin. We are not perfect, and the devil and temptation do not do any good toward helping us. We need to resist the devil, believe in God, and he will give us the strength to do so.

Some like to blame God as to why there are so many wicked people on the earth. But remember he gave us the perfect beginning with the hope of living forever. Rebellious angels and rebellious humans messed it all up by their disobedience to God, the very one who gave them everything they needed and showered them with love. How ungrateful could a person be?

But this will not be allowed to go on forever for the Bible promises at Psalm 37: 10 & 11: And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.
