      Why does the LORD create darkness and evil?

      Read this by St. Augustine:
      “I make good things and ‘create’ evil things.” For to “create” means to order and arrange. And so in most manuscripts it is written, “I make good things and order evil things.” To make is to give being to something that did not exist at all, but to order is to arrange something that already exists in such a way that it becomes greater and better. Thus, when God says, “I order evil things,” he means those things that fall away, that tend to non-being, and not those that have attained their end. For it has been said that, owing to the divine providence, nothing is permitted to reach a state of non-being. - "The Catholic and Manichaean Ways of Life 2.7.9"

        sophistry of the highest order.
        If the Divine is All, it is both darkness and light.

          You know, whenever one is having a discussion on these type of topics, a better word to use is 'scribe error' instead of a mistranslation. Pic is related.

      Why don't you read the Bible for once and reflect on who God is and what He wants instead of posting troll threads? You might have less questions.

        He is still right, a better translation is the word 'calamity'.

    God gave humanity the ability to commit evil acts and be able to stray from his light (and fall into darkness) because it ultimately stems from God wanting mankind to act as the vehicle for something he cannot truly experience: true growth. Growing from a seed and into a flower coupled with the agency that comes from being mortal.

    God is the Alpha and Omega. Birth and Death. He is the Beginning and End of all things and peoples. He can see the start and completion of an event, but not everything else (until it happens). He is the first and last chapter of a book. He is not the middle section, the connective tissue that binds everything together and ultimately creates a perfect whole. Without humanity, God would be "perfect" but this would be unearned and hollow. Pure, but still something is missing.

    Remember, God created humanity BEFORE he created Adam and Eve (or Adam Kadmon if you subscribe to israeli folklore). Adam was his personal project to serve as the perfect representative(s) of mankind and the ultimate connection to God. The Fall was such a big shake-up because God knew that Adam and his wife would stray from his authority and leave Eden, just not that it would be done out of disobedience/ego. Hence why God is so angry and upset when he discovers what has happened.

    God allows for evil to exist because it is an aspect of life crucial to the meaning of humanity: one cannot climb back to heaven without knowing what it is to err and fail and make mistakes. As we grow and then become part of God once more, God too grows.

    people fail to recognize that creating something does not mean you are that thing. i create a clay pot, does that make me a clay pot? no. god can create that which he pleases without having the attributes of the thing created in any context. thus, god can be good and create evil.

      for a little more context, we can look at the rest of the chapter,

      “Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker,
      those who are nothing but potsherds
      among the potsherds on the ground.
      Does the clay say to the potter,
      ‘What are you making?’
      Does your work say,
      ‘The potter has no hands’?
      10 Woe to the one who says to a father,
      ‘What have you begotten?’
      or to a mother,
      ‘What have you brought to birth?’

    You are being tempered, among other things. At least that's been my interpretation.
    Read Calvin, he is based and answers the question better than me.
