I got to thinking, and I feel I need to clarify; not justify, but clarify.
Because of my controlling nature I suppose, I have settled into the belief that what is right and wrong in this world is solely the responsibility of man. Not that I want to get into a scripture war here, but the Bible does say that God's temple is in you, me and all of us. So my belief is that good (God) and evil (Devil) resides inside us and that you and I have the power to make decisions based on our moral code that has been taught to us throughout our life times. If someone is lacking that moral code, then evil will have its way. This is what I meant by "The power of choice, of self-reliance, and our own will."
Thanks for the comments :)
