Basically everyone is "good", or has the makings of  a good soul. Every religion on earth can say the code of right and wrong is summed up in the Ten Commandments. Living it is another story, and remaining good, with forces of temptation and evil,  isn't so easy. We are not supposed to steal, but look how many do. We are not suppose to kill, but look at how many murders occur daily.  I do not know what brings people to the brink of the most unthinkable acts, but somehow our world has become one of no regard for life, limb, or common decency. Hit and runs daily, who leaves a person you hit with your car to die on the street, while you run?  Our political atmosphere is on the brink of civil war and riots, and God Help us all when it spirals out of control. Everyday we watch the news and ask, how can it get much worse. 

We all try to live good honest lives, we go to work, pay taxes, struggle with bills, and the last thing we think of is taking advantage of our fellow man. But thousands do, from robbery, burglary, larceny, and just about every scam to trick you with. Telemarketers, email scams, identity theft, behind everyone is someone with no moral compass.  Even Atheists do not need a religion to live at least a moral life not hurting anyone. The vast majority have within their roots some religious upbringing, that also teaches what is right and wrong, and what is a sin. We all live with a basic mindset of what we know is wrong, and some form of Faith and worship, pick a religion there are plenty of them. Somewhere along the line of our society, is a world of doing nothing but bad to unsuspecting people. 

Expect that everyday, is a challenge, and the challenge is to live life honestly, do the right things, and rely on your own Faith. Some go off to church every sunday, and many days of the week, others not so much. I guess we all try to measure our own Faith, and our Faith gets tested on a regular basis. Sometimes they are big ones. We Trust in God, and believe things will get better for the world, and too many have lost all Faith, the results are what we see daily, and it is sad. We have many tribulations in life, all of them test our Faith. 

Keeping your soul clean, is pretty simple, we know what is right and wrong, God and our Faith guide us, and when you have lost all Faith and belief in this, the world and you, are in a crisis. World affairs, the division in the USA right now, political hate, intolerance, we are in bad shape. We can not do much about some of those big ones, but maintaining your own soul we can do. There are way too many with lost souls, just turn on the news.
