Both instances have their advantages and disadvantages. Overcoming evil through great effort makes you learn and experience a lot through the process, making you a better strong person. Born good makes you dad's little angel and the person everyone adores.
Jesus said the following at Luke 13:24, "Exert yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will seek to get in but will not be able." We all have struggles. Even God had to cope with the fact that some of his angles rebelled. What matters is how we deal with it. We must trust in God. At Proverbs 3:5,6 it says, "Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not lean upon your own understanding. In all your ways take notice of him, and he himself will make your paths straight."
Overcoming evil has nothing to do with how you were born. It has to do with how your faith is. I've overcome so much evil in my life. Good ALWAYS wins over evil, unless you succumb to it. I choose to be a part of the winners not the losers.
No one is born evil. We are animals, for survival we are born selfish and self serving. In a civilized environment these normal traits have to be held under control. This is accomplished by learning.Compassion and a certain amount of self sacrifice is taught by others, and through personal observance.what makes us the greatest species is, we have the ability to rise above our natural instincts. the ones who do not accomplish this, become politicians, and lawyers. And of course Dictators.
you are born with some karma but no one is born good or evil. you just are you, and how you live your life with free will is how you will see how you are guided to be. its somewhat a choice. you learn evil.
No one is born good. Have you ever wondered why a toddler has a fit when another toddler takes his toy? We are all born into sin. That is why Jesus said that we must be born again into the kingdom of God.
To be born good is not a supernatural providence, but naturally insured. Every child is, by default, born divine, good and pure. His condition is, for better or worse, determined by the choices he's made on his journey through life. He suffers the consequence of bad actions, just as he enjoys the consequence of bad actions.
Finite goodness doesn't exist in the arbitrary will of the Infinite. Goodness of man, including all his attributes, must be earned. Men are good or bad for themselves, others cannot be good or bad for them, they cannot be charged with the crimes, or credited with the virtues, of others.
The Christian doctrine of "Original Sin" is monstrous, absurd and immoral. It makes maternity a crime. So is the dogma of imputed guilt, vicarious virtue. and vicarious vice. We are not accountable for the "sins" of Adam and the "virtues" of Christ cannot be transferred to us.
If man is born good or evil according to the whims of God, then, why doesn't He make us all good? Is it because He wishes to show us His justice and mercy? A god must be a monster who creates billions of men purposefully "evil", so that he could have an excuse to grill them for eternity!
