Concept of Yin and Yang, Dark and Light. The Yin is the darkness, a representation of evil, and the Yang is the light, a representation of goodness. However, even in the field of light, there is a dot of darkness, and even in the field of darkness, there is a glimmer of light. Within this material world, there exists a sort of balance between the Yin and the Yang, the Dark and the Light, the Good and the Evil. Whatever you wish to call it, it remains a universal truth. In this material world, due to the free will of mankind, there will always be some amount of evil that will oppose the good, and some amount of good that will oppose the evil. Creating a seemingly fragile balance, where both sides fight to make headway into the other.
Because people are weak. James 1:14-15 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
Sin,urepented sins,sin gives demons a legal foothold,the right to oppress you,even possession can occur,the more sin the more doors you open for them.Jesus came to save us from our sins,so when we repent our sins,he forgives us for our sins,and cleanses us,and hopefully we don't repeat our sins.
The apostle Paul warned that the last days would bring a marked increase in false teaching. "The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons" (1 Timothy 4:1). The last days are described as "perilous times" because of the increasingly evil character of man and people who actively "resist the truth" (2 Timothy 3:1-9; see also 2 Thessalonians 2:3).

By who's definition of bad? That implies good. If man is a product of evolution and all is morally relevant, there is no such thing as absolute 'bad' or 'good.' From the standard of perfection as expressed by the Christian worldview, everyone is 'bad'. It is human nature; for from the heart come all evil thoughts, evil deeds, evil attitudes. A 2-year old raised in a loving home who has never watched TV will reveal his self-centeredness.
Some hide it better than others. Yes, I agree the problem is sin, a spiritual disease every human is terminally ill with. Wait, there is one solution for the sin problem--the Person of Jesus Christ paid for sin's penalty by His death and resurrection; and He can change the heart. We can be healed if we believe God's diagnosis and follow His treatment--committment to Christ.
People are not bad- they can be misguided. Until we know the pain of others we will not empathize. Some have brain damage and undesirable mutations that inhibit compassion but they are just genetic mistakes and products of bad parenting. The things people do that are bad are what we should target because people are just animals with too much power.
In the beginning Adam and eve committed the first original sin by eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It is very symbolic but you can find more information about it on Catholic websites and look up the Bible verse.
Well, the truthful answer can come from the most truthful book in the world. The BIBLE! We are created in God's image and have the potential of being very loving and kind people. But we have the choice to do right or wrong. Following bible principles will help us be better people. Not following bible principles-such as love your neighbor as yourself-results in great harm to others. Also, the bible says Satan is misleading and influencing people on earth to do wrong. (Revelation 12:9) ( 1 John 5:19) So it's important to follow the bible's counsel as a protection. We experience death because of sin.(Romans 5:12 )"That is why just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned" However God has promised to do away with death would you like to know more.
