Vernon Grounds comments, “Is the world improving? Is mankind making progress? Technologically, yes; morally, no. Alas, the 20th century is perhaps the bloodiest century in all recorded time. You look at what’s transpiring around the world and, except for the promise of God and His ultimate purpose, you might succumb to despair.” Why can a Christian and an atheist both agree on a human nature with destructive tendencies?

      I think that both a Christian and Atheist can agree on human nature having destructive tendencies, because if you look around or listen to the news, you hear it all around you. It is true that all people. whether they are believers are not, have this tendency. Christians know that this tendency is a sin nature, but an Atheist may not have any reasoning for it. People from any background or belief can still see and record instances where humans have turned something “good” into something destructive, despite the intentions.

      Both an atheist and Christians can agree the destructive tendencies because many things have been created by men and women scientists later end up with destruction of our world, but Christians have believed and trust in the promises of God on his ultimately purpose for us different to this an atheist who don’t have this hope and promises.

      Both a Christian and an Atheist can agree on human nature with destructive tendencies because that is the reality of our world today. The only difference is that the Christian knows why we have destructive tendencies (sin) and they have a hope to turn to.

      A Christian and an atheist can agree on a human nature with destructive tendencies because of what is happening now and from history, but as Christians we also believe and trust in the promises of God and His Ultimate purpose for us, in apposed to the atheist who don’t have this belief.

      Christians and atheists can agree that we have destructive tendencies because though men and women have created amazing things through technology, many of those same things can be used to harm our earth and our fellow humans.

      I believe a Christian and an atheist can agree, because of all the bloodshed we see today. Look at 2020 witb all the violence, rioting and looting. Look at all the destruction. Look at all the hatred spewed out at this time. Anyone can see the destructive tendencies of human nature.

      We both recognize the destructive nature in humanity. Christians recognize this as a fall from grace. Atheists believe this is just human nature as it has evolved through time.

      Because we have an inner moral compass that tells us what is right and wrong. We can all agree that certain things are wrong, like murder and stealing.

      Past experiences, past events we all see the same things happening. We know what is good and we see the injustice and immorality all around us. God created both the Christian and the atheist in His own image. We have been given the ability to love mankind.

      Even without Christianity in mind, morally, mankind has been progressively more immoral.
