QUESTION: If God made His creatures perfect Where did Satan get that evil from? And Who created evil and wickedness?
ANSWER: Any good thing we see, until we know it is good, it is because there is something wrong that proves its goodness.
For example when you taste sugar until you know that sugar is sweet it is because you came across with something like salt before, or else you wouldn’t say sugar is sweeter……or when you see the light, until you know that this is light, it is because you have seen the dark and now how it looks light…
Nevertheless You would never new that this is a day if you have never seen the night before, you could never know that you are healthy if you have never been sick etc.
You can not judge foolishness if you haven’t known wisdom, one can be called gentle only because there is brute , until you know that there is a tall one it because there are shorts to compare with, you can not say this person is so meek while you haven’t seen an angry person, therefore the negative side is there to prove that positive exists, and everything is the same.. white-to-black, woman-to-man..etc
Now when God began to create His creatures, He created them all perfect, and allow them to taste goodness…But they would not known the goodness if there is no evil..thefore evil must also be there to prove the goodness.
The first group of createures to be created were angels, then follows humans…so from the beginning the angels were given ability to know good and evil in order to be complete.
Then, the angels knew now that in order for them to be holy as God they must hate unholy acts, in order to be good they must reject the evil of hating their fellow angels and their creator, in order to be honest then, they not to lie to one another etc.
Isaiah 45: 7 “I form the light, and create darkness; I have made amends, and have sought out evil; I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Lamentations 3:38 “Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good ”?
But later on things changed. Some angels, led by their father Satan, began to turn away from truth, and wanted to govern themselves, so they thought it is the best idea to choose evil to fulfill their fate, now instead of love they began to hate, they hated their fellow obedient angels, they also hated their creator who created them all, they began to lie, and began to destroy and fighting.
Then, when sin gained power in them, they lacked the glory of God, they became more wicked and wicked, and as the result were cast out of heaven from the God’s holy habitation.
So if you ask where the evil came from, know that evil and good were both created by God to fulfill a good purpose. But when those who turned away to love evil more than good they considered evils createres … So where did the devil got the wickedness? The answer is he was created with it.
Even now, whether you are a Christian or not, that knowledge of good and evil has been in you since Eden. It was God’s plan for evil to exist in a person for good purposes. Now it is up to you to choose one side, if you choose goodness then you will try to stay away from evil,and vice versa if you love evil then you will hate goodness.
John 3:19 “And this is the judgment; that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God”.
But we who are saved have loved the Light, that is why God’s judgment is not upon us … as Scripture says in Romans 8: 1.
