    When God made man, He made him as He was,

    then from where did man get feelings of hatred, jealousy, greed, pride etc?

    God granted man free will to think. Since this free will is present, it allows people to determine what they want to think and this is where the hatred and other things you mentioned come from.

    God also gave man free will. Man has used his free will unwisely at times.

    I feel jealous when I make it all about me, that I should have this and I need it...
    I feel hate when I think another person wronged me, again when I make it about me... How dare he??
    Same with pride, greed...

    In other words, I create all feelings in me, the bad and the good.  Accountability is powerful!

    Good question. Actually when God made man he never thought that we man will behave like this. But unfortunately we are committing blunders. Actually It is God who made a man with good and bad instincts and He gave us mind to think and to follow what we like. It is we who are following things completely according to out will. If Jesus is here then Satan is also here. And you know this thing only discriminates good and bad people.

    hatred, jealousy, greed, pride etc?  are the things man inherited from Satan, he is the deceiver of the Nations.....
    Satan was not created in Gods image or as God was/is

    Rev 20:2          And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

    Rev 20:3          And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

    Rev 20:7           And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

    Rev 20:8           And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea.

    The Bible says that God made man in His image. This means that we are representations of God to His creation. It does not mean that we are godlike.
    The feelings you ask about are a result of Adam's choice to sin. He had that choice because God gave us the option to choose. Either we agree with God and follow His moral law, or we rebel against God go our own way. There is no middle ground.

    God, made Adam , in His image, and Adam flawed the image.

    Able, Cain and Seth, were made in Adam's image.   They proved to have great flaws.

    As the " image " was further compromised, the flaws grew greater in our human character.  How close to the image of God, can we now, claim to be?

    It seems, to  me, that we are so far removed, and so greatly flawed, that God, offered, the death of His own Son,  to bring us back to Him........still, there are those who will  not reach out to take the Redeeming hand.

    As a collective humanity, we can not be much , in the way of God's image.

    People, by nature, tend to take the path of least resisitance.............'the devil made me do it'..........we would be a better people, if we simply said, I messed up, got lost, strayed, and I need to find my way back......................

    Everything came from God, but the versions of some of these things have been perverted by fallen man. Your question makes the assumption that these feelings are inherently bad and could not come from God. However, the feelings only become "bad" when man perverts them. Hate in itself is not evil. We are to hate sin. When we hate people, then it becomes evil.  Jealousy is also not evil. We should guard ourselves jealously less we allow evil in.  God is called jealous several times in the Bible:  "Do not worship any other god, for the Lord is a jealous God." (Exodus 32:14).

    Greed and pride are a bit more difficult to understand, but that is because they are perverted versions of good emotions. Pride is feeling that something is good in an arrogant and unceasing way. Feeling that something is good or being proud of something is not evil. After all, God looked on his creation each day in the beginning and said, "It is good".

    Greed stems from insatiable desire for things. Desire or need for things in and of itself is not bad. God desires the obedience and love of his children. Obviously, he doesn't need it, but the Bible clearly states that he WANTS us to follow and obey him.  So, God has desire for something. In a human, desire for food to live is not greed. Desire for the ability to eat anytime you want and at any expense is a perversion of the basic desire for food.

    So, we don't have to say we "inherited" these things from Satan. Everything came from God. Fallen man is not perfect, and thus he perverts these things. Satan takes full advantage of that and manipulates things even further.

    From the Ability of making DECISIONS. We can judge between right and wrong and this is called morality. In almost all Religious scripture it is mention that the first human beings made were pious (mostly referred as Adam and Eve) and it is they themselves that misused the abilities given to them by God.
