Yes, a person can be born bad, but they can change, if they desire. Nurture can help, sometimes.
God is said to have loved Jacob and hated Esau. Why? Karma and reincarnation. Even though Esau was born first by a few seconds, Jacob was destined to gain the birthright from their father.
When the disciples of the Nazarene asked about a man born blind sitting at one of the gates of Jerusalem seeking alms, their question included the implication of reincarnation and karma. Was he blind because of something he did? But how can someone deserve to be born blind unless they had lived before and committed some crime.
The best thing the person born bad can do is be grateful for every seemingly undeserved misfortune that could perpetuate their resentment of the world around them. With such gratitude, they release the burdens of the past. This "turning the other cheek" helps them rise above the dichotomies and mechanics of this world.
In a very real sense, the truth will set you free.
