What do you think? Are humans inherently good or evil?

    People are flawed. We have inherited the conseqences of the wrongs that have been done before us.. by our parents, and theirs.. all the way back to Adam. At the center of our flawed nature is a break with truth.
    We all lack truth. We are all deceived. We must seek to know the degree of our deception. People are absolutely capable of “good” things… Even an evil man will not give his son a serpent when he asks for bread. However our capacity and even our desire for good is distorted by the deception that we are under.
    We cannot cure our own deception by thinking our way out or learning our way through. It is our thinking and learning that have been affected! It is something that we need to be rescued from and healed of… and because you can’t give away what you don’t have. Truth can only come from the one that has never been decieved. -TheGreatRedLion

    Interesting. I wish that you could have been at the Bridge last night. We really had a great disussion about it all. I know that I agree with you, but I was challenged.

  3. Bridger,

    I would have loved being there. Its among people that disagree with us that we are able to find the flaws in our own thinking. Sometimes its tough to welcome criticism though 🙂 You are part of a REALLY good thing. People on both sides of the “fence” need the opportunity to talk. I am very glad that you are doing it.
