VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Even evil fathers can give good gifts to his children

"If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good gifts [gifts that are to their advantage] to your children,"

Romans 7:18 (Amplified Bible)

For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]

Titus 3:3 (Amplified Bible)

For we also were once thoughtless and senseless, obstinate and disobedient, deluded and misled; [we too were once] slaves to all sorts of cravings and pleasures, wasting our days in malice and jealousy and envy, hateful (hated, detestable) and hating one another.

John 3:5-6 (Amplified Bible)

Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.

What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of the physical is physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Evil fathers can give evil gifts, but they think their gifts are good but it's not. Only the FATHER can give good gifts because the FATHER is Good. Being Good is one attribute of GOD.

Mark 10:18 (Amplified Bible)

And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me [essentially and perfectly morally] good? There is no one [essentially and perfectly morally] good—except God alone.

Luke 18:19 (Amplified Bible)
