    It's not, it's just protrayed that way in films.  I am so sick and tired of those type of films, when a villan is praised and a good person is prosecuted.  The tide has turned that is the reason for a lot of the crime we see today in the world.....if you praise it others will do it. I believe people are for the most part good, it's just that in this day and age the bad are more respected because of that wealth, this is so wrong.  God is our judge and the day will come.

    Bad news stories sell, good ones do not. So when you watch the news or read the paper, bad people doing bad things will always be more interesting. Perhaps it's everybody's innate desire to do anything they want and not get caught at it. Hollywood knows this, and so promotes it, knowing it will sell better (and not worrying about the consequences.)

    It is not, just because the media says stick your head in a bucket does not give anyone a reason to believe it is good, look at the celeb world, the largest bunch of odd-balls around.

    It's very clear, just look all around you. The recent tornadoes, the killings in Mexico, the earthquake in Hatti and Japan, and the flooding of the Mississippi which is about 4 mile from where I live. All these bad things are happening because of the devil. He is behind all of it. It's not better to do bad than good, it's just easier. If you believe in God you will do good and succeed in life. Now how you define successful will determine whether you get there or not. If you define successful as rich and powerful, ask someone who is there and I guarantee to you they will have a different perspective of successful. No one wants to hear it, but that's the sad truth about life. See the good side to life, the one that doesn't involve all the bad things and you will be content with what you have and where you stand.

    Is it really better to be bad than good in this world? Who said that? There  are more good people than bad people. If this were not true, we'd all be fighting and carrying weapons to protect ourselves. The media glorifies the bad more than they do the good. Bad news is more fascinating than good.Bad and depressing news feeds the primal part of the masses who have no desire to carry out evil or bad behavior.

    I don't accept that it's better to be bad than be good. Being better is even "good." Depends on how you define good.

    I never believe bad is good as the outcome will never be. It is always better for being good. The reward maybe of different form as it is better not to expect. When we do good, we generate good karma and accumulate merits for our deed. You will receive reward when the time comes.

    It is better of generating positive thinking for doing good things and you will be happier. Don't ask for anything when you do good as it will come when the time is right. Just do the right thing!

    I believe what ever you do will come back to you.
    What you sow is what you will reap.
    If some one steals and kills and such right now and it appears they are getting away with it however when it comes back to them (and it will) they will be stolen from and even cause their own death because of the stealing and killing they are doing.

    On the other hand when you do good to others and help and bless others and inspire others, it may not appear that all your good deeds and words and such are doing nothing but rest assured, it will come back. Your faith determines how much you will get back.

    But honest the law of sowing and reaping is a law no one can separate from, it's a law that always applies in life, period.   GOD IS GOOD smile

    To be or not to be...........
    just be yourself
    be the person you are mean to be
    whatever you give you will get it back
    if you want to be evil, you will get evil
    and if you be good
    all good things will happened to you
    the choice is yours!
