    Well said. That takes care of the physical component, but the spiritual adds a wrinkle to that description. The story of Jacob and Esau shows how levels of ego and righteousness can be different even in their mother's womb.

    No child is born evil. It is also true that parents do not teach their children to learn bad things.

    Poverty, environment and atmosphere in the family plays a major role in shaping a child's character.

    Ecclesiastes 7:20 (KJV) "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." Having said that I would argue there is a difference between being a "sinner" and being "evil" I suppose it depends on the sin. :-)

    I think there is a difference between "sin" and "evil". A shoplifter that steals a loaf of bread is a "sinner" but I wouldn't say he or she is "evil". Ecclesiastes 7:20 (KJV) "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
