I question that choice is free will.We make choices based on our knowledge/experience.Why does a child put his hand in the fire?Because he is evil?No, because he is curious,he has a hunger to learn.Who placed that hunger for knowledge into this child?So acting on that hunger is not a choice,it is part of who we are.

Even Paul writes,The things I would do I do not,that which I would not do,those things I do"he also proclaims himself to be "chief of sinners",not that he was a sinner and now is a good man.He knew the evil of the flesh that CANNOT be shaken off by man.That is not a choice,we are born into it.There is no riotousness in this world except for the Spirit of God! NOT 1 MAN NOR WOMAN!
and why is that?GOD'S WILL!Did you ever think that maybe God wants us to experience sin and evil so that we knew the difference and would be so totally overwhelmed by it's absence when we enter into His kingdom?Does that mean you can go out and do as you wish and sin as you like?Well you do anyways,so yes as a matter of fact it does.Of coarse God is not pleased by it but HE knows we must experience it as part of HIS plan!No one wakes up ans say to themselves "I'm going to be evil today" it is a natural occurrence.We are compelled to do so.Show me a man who thinks he sins less than another and I'll show you a man so wrapped up in himself he loves no one else!


dude, did you cut and paste this or are you serious??

YES, and they're on BK!


I find it absolutely amazing that anyone could judge another with such clarity and definition when thier only means of any knowledge of that person is on a website??

In my opinion True evil only exsists where there is a lack of knowledge and true understanding.

I sincerely doubt there is ANY truly evil people on here. I know quite a bit about the Bible and have seen it used in so many ways... unfotunately most were selfish ways..

The Bible says LOVE the sinner HATE the sin. Judge not less ye be Judged. You cannot know whats in the heart of a man unless you are that man. I love everyone, no matter what they say or do. I also try to take what they say the way it was intended and not twist it into some definition of who they are inside. Most people you can see more by reading between the lines rather than the face they wear.

I vowed not to discuss spirituality on here because everyone thinks they have the answer and everyone else is wrong.

My opinion is that EVIL is when others JUDGE in the name of GOD!! Casting stones is really a scary practice.

Maybe I shouldn't stir up trouble myself. I am going to try behaving.
Passionate statement DirtyBikers..

I hear ya SS... I hear many things that are wispered lol... Its all good, we are all learnin in this life and will continue to do so I hope..

Wars of economics are more palatable then wars of religion since the latter seeks complete extinction of those who oppose a chosen set of beliefs. While wars of economics seek merely to dominate or gain control of natural resources.
All stones are cast from a glass house and truly thrown at oneself.
I think Christ even said something to the affect that it is natural to love one's own kind like animals, but to love those who are different is divine.

Yes ignorance births numerous evils and the greatest deception is the certainty of one's own perceptions in judgement when the judge is flawed as well.

As long as we see the other as less than or different than ourselves and less than human it is acceptable to treat them inhumanely and even kill them.
To sell an inhumane act to the public the destroyed must be viewed as less than human--psychops

Hey SPS.. Been awhile....See your doing good with Guy.. Good for you..Hope the best for the two of you.

I cant answer for someone directly here, can only respond to what Ive seen..
Clarity and Definition I didnt see? Did you?... I may be missing something here...
I just saw a reaction voiced in writing.. Could be a first impression reaction, Second, Third, Ect.... with emotion mixed in..
If all you have is the Written words with Pictures, your reaction is to whats given.. and Its more difficult to form an opinion or as you say to judge.. I agree there.. but You deal with whats given.. Right? Didnt see a judge though.. Just a statement..
If im wrong here... I stand corrected...

We are all mixed in here and have to learn to respect and get along, with respect for others faith and lifestyles.. If it is of no interest or offends you or your values, dont go there.. Nothing is forced on anyone here... H**ll cant wait for the l*esbo thread... LOL.....

Also treading on others is wrong for everyone.. If you have a problem with it, start your own Thread...

Peace and Ride Safe...

LOL... See U tried to respond.. Dang BK.. Discussion is good.. though

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

No she is Cinderella! Evil is in Kentucky...just do a BK username search. I never knew it could be so easy to identify and locate.
I feel much better knowing where Evil is; clears up a lot of uncertainties.

curses I have been found out lol
