    Because there are so many people in general, of the billions there are, many are bound to be bad. There are so many good people too, but I'd say most are merely neutral.

    Because we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. For this reason of sin, Christ came into this world as God in human flesh, to save it and win back eternal life that Adam, Eve and Satan lost in the Garden of Eden. We are given the opportunity by God to choose the sacrifice of Jesus as our Savior from sin. Without Jesus, The Final Sacrifice, we have no hope for eternal life. But with Jesus and believing in what He did for us, we have the gift of eternal life in Heaven hereafter. There is a great deal more to the spiritual world than the physical.

    Wrong. According to statistics, 90 odd percent of people are good. But there are so many people that even the small 10 percent left are still A LOT.

    There will always be evil in the world, yet goodness outweighs it, it’s unfortunate the media seems to focus on the negative when there are so many heroes and positive stories to be conveyed.

    ▪ “Each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin.”—JAMES 1:14, 15.

    All humans are susceptible to wrong thinking. Every day, we are bombarded with countless suggestions and temptations to do wrong. Back in Bible times, Christians were told: “No temptation has taken you except what is common to men.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) Even so, the outcome depends on the choice one makes—to dismiss the bad thought quickly or to entertain it and allow it to grow. The scripture above from the inspired letter of James warns that if one allows the wrong desire to “become fertile,” bad actions are sure to follow.

    Most people aren't bad. You just hear about the bad ones more often because of the news.

    they don't see themselves as bad, they see you and people like you as bad.

    Too many people act on emotion rather than objective reasoning.
