      Though man was and is created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), man’s heart is most deceitful (Jeremiah 17:9) and every man born (except Jesus) inherited the sin nature (a strong inclination to do wrong). I suspect that all these crime causation theories have elements of truth and those elements may contribute and/or expedite and/or magnify his propensity to break both God’s and Man’s laws.

      I feel that most of the theories discussed on this section might help to gain an understanding on criminal behavior. However, im more incline to utilized the classical theoretical perspective Genesis 3.6.

      In the lecture it was stated, “Biological theories suggest “criminal genes” cause deviant behavior. Criminals are identifiable through physical characteristics or genetic makeup.” I think back in the day, that being a leper could possibly be supported in the biological theory, lepers were outcast in Jesus day. Mark 1:40-45 describes such a scene. “And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.”
