@sheaallan Are you asking the right question?
Juan_Pablo_4_hillary says2016-08-20T17:32:00.2011809Z
God is the father of evil and suffering. You think too highly of God.

God wanted intelligent companions to join him in his universe, and was willing to risk imposing all sorts of misery on them to get that. Evil and suffering are a byproduct of God creating a universe that could support intelligent biological life.

But thank you for your opinion @juan_pablo_4_hillary

All matter (and space) can feel pain. But God raised the level to which it could be articulated inside of a material body. By giving material bodies a capacity for heightened intelligence (like him), he allowed these bodies to recognize their own mortality (impending deaths). The intelligent, self-aware universe (who God most definitely is) invited evil and suffering by creating a complex universe that could support life.

Evil people create evil by their evil actions

Evil is the absense of good. God is the Father of good

@DiEgO123100, so evil is the absence of God? So God's not omnipresent?
DiEgO123100 says2016-09-15T22:33:47.5743249Z
Not at all. God is omnipresent, yet if there was no evil, good wouldn't exist either, because there wouldn't be anything to contradict good and make good "good"

@DiEgO123100, so evil isn't the absence of God?
