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.

Well Davey, another Christmas has come and gone. Were you a good little boy this year?

Did Santa bring you all the Lord Of The Rings dolls you wanted?

My word, I bet you have spent all day playing with them. Perhaps you took a rest from playing by settling back with a big plate of cookies and milk and watching one of your new Muppet or Babar videos.

Which wouldn't be so bad. If you weren't 20 years of age.

And you think yourself a leader among men.

LOLOLOLOLOL -by the way I hope you did not spill milk on your nifty new Texas flag shirt. Thank god for sippy cups. Just the thing for clumsey thirsty tykes like yourself.

Merry Christmas Master Davey. You be good now, ya hear ;)
