If there is only one God... then everything he creates is OF him... and THUS divine.<quoted text>
Yes, I understand that everything is "of God." Everything is by him, through him, of him. But, I do not believe God is evil, because by definition "evil" to me means anything that is separate from God, separate from his nature, and separate from his expressed instructions which can be chosen to obey. I do not believe that everything is "divine," because he did not create each individual thing to do ALL of the things that he does, and to be all that he is. Now we have to define "divine," and this discussion is very difficult for me to participate in now. We have so much misunderstanding between each other
Evil would not exist without God bringing it into existence.
God knew what he was doing when he created it.
Therefore... God has to be evil... as well as good.
I don't understand how you can see it any other way.
