If, when we are born, into the world, we are just like an open book with blank pages ready to be filled then we have to consider what is our nature at this point.
Now n it is based upon
a) Our genes b) The diet, oxygen intake, position, etc. in the womb.
Now it seems to me that to become a Christian you must be educated as one.
Naturally if there was no eductaion of religion our genes would transform us into what we may call animals.
With education we have a gudie to channel our thoughts relative to a set, though flexible, code of general conduct. For example you could see Christianity as our moral guide, and science as our guide to seeking reality, technology for betterment of society/societies.
Heard through the grapevine that it was once believed, still maybe, that evil is a belief in yourself. So Christianity is like, I feel, changing the natural way in order for there to be an artificial way. Some Christians may argue with this 'artificial' way if the have had access to teachings; but some societies have not had access to Christian teachings; and teachings depend on the quality of the tecaher/s.
So my point is this;
The Bible was created by God or others to change our natural ways for some other purpose.
This maybe an obvious conclusion but it gets down to the heart of this good and evil problem I feel. The questions are therefore three:
1. Did God create the Bible? 2. Did others (i.e humans) create the Bible? 3. For what purpose was the Bible created?
