What causes people to be evil?

What causes people to be evil or bad? Is it their childhood on how they were raised? Is it ingrained in their genes? How do we make evil people good? Is it possible?

We try to teach the inmates job skills in trying to keep them from returning to incarceration. So being employed, or having income prevents one from evil? If that is the case, we need to give good paying jobs to bad people.

Child services tries to take away children from abusive and derelict parents. So early negative experiences cause evil? Should we take away kids from evil people?

Mental hospitals use to remove part of the brain to treat disruptive behaviors. So genes cause evil? Would we ever go back to lobotomies to remove evil?

With all these theories on what causes evil, how do we deal with evil people? Presently and in the past, we have caught and imprisoned them, preventing them from contacting society. But how long can we continue to build new prisons and give them excellent health care?

In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is stated:

Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil.

It is only a bit of dust stuck on them. 1-52

These dusts are greed, arrogance, and self-love. If we can remove these evils from these people, it is said that they will become good.

But how do we remove these bad thoughts from evil people? We as society may not be able to directly help these people. But with our prayers, God may be able to help these bad people sweep evil from their minds. More to come on how God performs this miracle transformation…………..
