Theo, you didn’t prove anything. You made a claim and took scripture out of context to do so. The context of Isaiah 45 is critical to correctly interpret it. God is rewarding Israel for obedience and punishing Israel for disobedience. That’s not really a wise place to rest a doctrinal claim that God created evil IMO-but to each his own.Is. 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness:
I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
I made a claim.
I proved it with Scripture.
If you make a claim, then YOU are likewise bound to support YOUR claims with Scripture.
That's one more verse than YOU have ever shown.
You haven't DEMONSTRATED any alleged "problem".
Is it a secret?
Are you playing games with us?
If you are going to summarily reject a foundational meaning of a term, you need a VERY good reason to do so. So far, you haven't offered ANY reasons.
I would like respect as well.
So are you going to discuss the issues, or are you simply going to continue insulting me?
Secondly, I’m trying to understand what the logical argument is for the origination of evil.
it is inconsistent with scripture and yes with logic to say that a perfect and good God who is incapable of sin created sin.
i am not here to prove anything to you Theo- and it seems you are a very hostile type of personality so maybe just go away and let me work it out with others who have learned how to play nicely in the sandbox.
