God and Evil

Was evil created by G0D?

Evil is not a thing

You cannot have a jar of evil

but a can of worms exists

So, is evil the lack of good

or is good the lack of evil

ponder, ponder, ponder.

 

Holes are real

but exist only in

something else

the absence of dirt

is a hole

but cannot be

separated from dirt

God created choice

we may choose good

or reject good

a bad union is

a lack or rejection of good

but is not created as such.

 

does cold exist?

or is cold the absence of heat

or heat the absence of cold

 

does darkness exist?

is darkness the absence of light

or light the absence of darkness

 

if there is no possibility

for the absence of good

then humanity would serve God

out of obligation, not choice
