There are two things that are opposite to each other in life; Peace and War (evil). When there is no peace in a place, there must be war instead. Through war, a lot of evil things occur. Then we have two Supernatural beings who are opposite to each other; God and Satan.
When we are to attribute the first two terms (Peace and War) to both of them, we would be quick to say God is for peace while Satan is for war(evil) which is true. What if you are asked this simple question; "who created Peace and evil?". I am quite sure that your answer is going to be; "God created Peace while Satan created Evil".
If you are to be marked over 10, you are likely to score not more than 5/10. This is because you got the "B" part wrong. That part is what we shall be looking at today.
Who created evil?
Satan is not a creator as he was created by the creator. God created Satan before he chose to oppose Him and was given a kingdom in the lake of fire. God was the one who created evil before Satan and his agents find pleasure in perpetrating it. Let us read from the book of Isaiah 45:7
"I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things". KJV
When you read the new version of King James, the word "evil" was translated to a more strong word. Read below.
"I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things". NKJV
It will be totally wrong to give Satan a power he doesn't possess. We all know that God is the creator of the Universe including Satan himself so he didn't create evil. The difference is that Satan is the main perpetrator of evil.
By the way, were you thinking that Satan created evil? Please share.
