Today, reply is on the divine creation of evil as well as the evil generated and maintained by disbelievers and sinners. Like sacred events (we say, miracles) that conform to their own set of divine laws, evil that carries out and fulfills divine intent does not violate divine order, natural law, or sacred law. The two different origins of evil put forth different circumstances and conditions, and display different forms, operations, eternal purpose, and sacred substance. Many mistakenly entertain the thought that evil and wickedness can not exist in the presence of divine holiness, majesty, and purity; and that GOD may not exist where evil has control and power. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality forum who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile data appears) posted the following:

 

Why do people who don’t believe in God say that if he was real there wouldn’t be evil?

If God was real why would he have to live up to someone’s standards? If he’s our creator he can do what ever he wants to us he doesn’t need anyone approval. Do people not believe cause they can’t stand the fact of something being more powerful than them?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil. (Micah 2: 1-3, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, many things developing Christian believers will see among sinners and those obeying their own flesh express vanity (the absence of spirit content from GOD), spiritual confusion, and exaggerated pride. The evil they promote does not express awe (i.e., acknowledge the awesomeness of GOD; fear of the lord), and is contrary to all existence, life, and divine order. The three persons who exist as one GOD (the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) have used Creation to display their oneness without sameness, sacred authority, divine prerogative, and sovereign will. Evil as a creation of GOD is not the same as the evil that describes human character and makeup, or evil displayed by mankind as iniquity, sin, and wickedness. Where evil is a divine tool, evil may appear as calamity, disaster, suffering, or “the unexpected” and “the unknown.” Evil will be an overturning or sudden reversal of human circumstances and conditions to establish the correct acknowledgment that only GOD may supply many of humanity’s continuing needs; that mankind also must fulfill eternal purposes; and that the living must continually respond to the active presence (we also say, breath; life essence; spirit; word) who is GOD. To have a complete and correct knowledge of divinity requires a person become transformed by the operations of GOD in their life. We say, You must be born again!, however, those “born again” must “grow up again” and become mature as vessels of divine spirit. A sinner must receive a new inner makeup that includes spirit substance from the Creator. Inseparable aspects from GOD should appear such as commitment, discernment, faith, forgiveness, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Isaiah 5: 21-22, King James Version (KJV): 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

(2.) Ecclesiastes 8: 11-13, KJV: 11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. 12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: 13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

(3.) Genesis 6: 5-6, KJV: 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

(4.) Galatians 5: 19-23, KJV: 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) James 1: 12-15, KJV: 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
