I think lots of people are sociopaths and don't know it.
Socialization is when the company you keep and society around you adjust the way you think and act. Gives you a sense of what's right and wrong.
Well, some people are good because they like the self image being good gives them. Being their definition of 'good' is like putting on nice clothes- they feel better about themselves, because they learned that these objective actions make them the objective definition of a good person.
Doing something immoral may make them uncomfortable only because it makes them feel ugly and goes against their ego. But societies values are fleeting, and many people took part in witch burnings, in human hunting, all over the world. They may have felt like good people when they did it.
That's it, that some people don't have an innate sense of what's right or wrong, but act to appease their self image, to FEEL good rather than BE good. Like are you a good person if you only do good deeds to feel good?
You have to be honest with yourself even when it's uncomfortable to be moral, because there is no goodness without truth. And to me, goodness is obedience to nature, and respect of the spirit. Walking the line between self flagellation and sheer decadence, so that you aren't mastered by anything. Being mastered by anything of flesh keeps you from the truth. The want of ego boost, of power, lust, these all keep you from growing. We ourselves didn't build the universe, our conscience is constructed, just like everything we see, and the design of things tells us how things are supposed to be used, like scissors have thumb holes and blades to hold and cut, we have hands to build and make, and our disposition is to seek spirit and purpose, so God made us like satellites to receive his signal. Art is supposed to mean something, and we are made with purposes that we may not understand.
I don't know if we're good people deep down, but the animal side of us seeks things on earth that disintegrate and die out, things that serve our decaying body. Our spirits are forever, and God calls us to set our eyes on things above rather than on earth. The animal part of us is the power seeking, ego seeking one, and the spirit goes against it, and flesh and spirit drown each other out. When quenched in spirit, with living waters, you don't need to serve the flesh so much. Only God can give that to us. Romans explains this.
If you can correct any of my takes on the Bible please mention.
