A Flawed ePremise?
eBay Community Values
"We believe people are basically good," proclaims the first of five value principles on eBay's community site. Not only is this directly contradicted simply by natural observation of behavior (particularly in the younger generation), but it is completely unbiblical as well.
"There is no one righteous, not
even one; there is no one who
understands, no one who seeks God.
All have turned away, they have
together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one. ... for all have
sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
-Romans 3:9-12, 23
I'm not going to make a fuss over it. Why get mad at people for acting according to their nature? I just wonder if the people in the Conflict Resolution department at eBay have any trouble buying the premise that everyone is basically good.
