In the temporal world, humanity is scarred with the sin of Adam. While baptism washes away this mark, it consequences still manifest. Human nature while preserved still is inclined to disorder and without grace cannot find proper direction. Within the body, one can see the disconnect between mind and body and the discord it can cause between doing what is right or wrong. There are a variety of physiological functions that can lead to issues that affect thinking and emotions. Passions and yearning that are disordered to an illusionary good that is sometimes not moral according to God’s design can further complicate.
Working with vice and immorality can be a difficult process. Christian Counselors, mentors, and pastors can help one live a better life with virtue but ultimately we all need God’s grace.
Fortunately, God is very patient and merciful. He sees our broken nature and understands the difficulties. He is always sharing His grace and forgiveness. It is critical we try and accept His grace to be morally better. On the final day, the body will rise and again be restored to its original order.

Social influences have impacts on individuals and how they respond. Multiple social experiments show how individuals respond to social, authoritative and peer pressured situations. Hence moral beliefs within individuals can sometimes be altered due to situations. While not everyone alters their moral belief due to circumstances and social pressures, many individuals succumb to pressures. This explains why in many cases, dictators can overwhelm a population and paint justifications for immoral actions.

Temperaments define one’s overall personality in life. It is not fluid and more permanent overall. It is something that one is or is not at birth. While temperaments can be cultivated via good parenting to bring out the best and limit the worst in each one, the primary temperament of someone will be dominant. Other minor temperaments can co-exist and create a unique blend.
No temperament is superior to the other but each has its own strengths and weaknesses. With this said, some will be more attracted to different virtues or vices more easily. This is not an excuse to live with a vice but it does explain why some more naturally are distracted by certain vices in life. With proper guidance, one can utilize whatever temperament for the greater glory of God.
