The Origin of Evil — 4 Comments

  1. Have the children of God missed this scripture all together in their need to blame one source for all evil?

    God tells us in Isaiah 45:7, “I form the light and create darkness; I make peace and CREATE EVIL; I the Lord do all these things.”

    There is no place in Scripture where we are told that evil is a creation of either man or the devil.  While it is true that men DO evil, and that evil certainly exists in the world, God always takes credit for it in the ultimate sense.

    All evil is the result of sin (khawtaw), missing the mark. God creates evil, but God never fails to achieve His goals. He never misses the mark. If God were ever to fail to reach His goal, He would become a “sinner.” So if we understand the divine plan, which is His goal, and see it not as wishful thinking but as the divine target of all history, then we will know the end from the beginning, because God will not fail to reach that goal.

    God is good, and God is not evil, but yet God stands above both, using both for His purpose.

    This teaching should make for a lively discussion.  https://godskingdom.org/studies/books/the-problem-of-evil/chapter-2-defining-evil-and-sin/

    • I actually never said that evil was created, I simply said that it was in the heart of Lucifer at the onset. Of course it goes without saying, that God created evil, of course He didn’t. But the thing that you’re missing here is that God has given man free will. Now, having said that, did the angels also have free will? Again, I’m not talking about the “creation” of evil, but rather perhaps the “origin.” But thank you for your reply!

  2. Very insightful article. It seems that an EGO, that thrives on selfishness, the desire to control, greed and lust, is the origin of all evil. The “I” that needs to be crucified.

  3. Thumbs up!Amen!
    …He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal .
