Spiritual Revelations for those seeking Humanity in Humans ~~CordieB.

Is the Human Race Inherently Good, or Inherently Evil?

Answer: This is the crossroads to which you have come. The future of the human race depends on which way you go.
If you and your society believe you are inherently good, you will make decisions and laws that are life affirming and constructive. If you and your society believe that you are inherently evil, you will make decisions and laws that are life denying and destructive.
Laws that are life affirming are laws that allow you to be, do and have what you wish. Laws that are life denying are laws that stop you from being, doing, and having what you wish.
Those who believe in Original Sin, and that the inherent nature of man is evil, claim that God has created laws which stop you from doing as you wish – and promote human laws (an endless number of them) that seek to do the same.
Those who believe in Original Blessing, and that the inherent nature of man is good, proclaim that God has created natural laws which allow you to do as you wish – and promote human laws that seek to do the same.
What is your viewpoint of the human race? What is your viewpoint of your Self? Left entirely to your own devices, do you see yourself as being able to be trusted? In everything? How about others? How do you view them? Until they reveal themselves to you, one way or the other, what is your basic assumption?
Now answer this. Do your assumptions further your society in breaking down, or breaking through?

Before asking your question, define ‘good’ and ‘evil’.
