Very interesting, Fundamentalist. Thanks for sharing! I was struck by the propensity of some of them to see evil as only that which man himself considers evil. As you know, God sees things differently. He said that our greatest righteousnesses are as filthy rags in His sight (Isaiah 64:6) and the Apostle Paul (quoting Psalm 14:1-3) made it clear that to God "there is none good; no not one" (Rom. 3:10). This becomes the basis for the tension between Arminianism and Calvinism--

Arminianism--There is some good in man; therefore He can choose God and be saved.
Calvinism--There is no good in man; God must choose him or will not be saved.

But that's another whole can of worms, right?
