Do we have qualities that don't belong to us but is what we have since we are made in His image OR is it because we are sinful and corrupt?

and so since we ate from the fruit we have gained knowledge that belongs to God.

For example: wrath

    By way of clarification, Adam was made in Gods image. That means that he was created in innocence, without sin, and intended to live for Gods purposes, and to yield himself to the righteousness of God.

    When Adam betrayed God by eating the forbidden fruit, his innocence quickly turned into guilt before God. He had tarnished Gods image by choosing to live for himself.

    When WE sin, thats a result of our flesh natures. When we cleave to God and his righteousness, we are living in Gods holy image.

    The bible states that all mankind has sinned and we are not made in 'his' image for ours is a flawed and frail form. What they state is we were made in the image that god perceived is to look like.

    Jehovah God gave each of His human creation qualities that reflect His own and by means of His holy spirit the good fruitage that produces good qualities stems from Jehovah. The bad qualities stems from inherited Adamic sin-Gal 5:22,23;Rom 5:12 jw.org

    No. Adam and Eve sinned so we inherited a disposition towards sinning. We still have the choice whether to sin or not. That means a person is perfectly capable of never sinning a day in his life if he/she really wants to refrain from doing so.
