I had a discussion with a friend (who isn't a christian) on the subject of what causes someone to be evil. I mentioned that I believe that some people are just destined to be born evil (we fight not against flesh and blood but against principalities of the air) . Just as we as christians are born to be Gods chosen. Some are born with such an evil bent to be serial killers and socialpaths. She thinks that even if someone has a bent towards evil, if raised in a good loving home they will still turn out good. They had to have something in their childhood to have caused them to turn out bad. I know we all have certain bents towards certain sins and that enviornment plays a huge role in our lives. But just as some who have had horrible lives, and unloving parents, have turned out good (christian or not) can also mean a person who was raised in a good loving home can also trun out bad...she disagrees. I can't help think of Cain and Able and how they lived in the most perfect enviornment possible.
