I created evil
Who created evil
I CREATED EVIL.
It is cleared that man’s view of God changed over the years. This is because there were times in human history when men held that God created both the good and the bad. Men believed that God punished people by bringing evil upon them and there was nothing like Satan or devil as everything that happened was connected to God be it good or bad. For instance the Greeks held such believe and they tried to please their God so that they can get good things from him. in the old testament when God was said to punish the Jews, he sent bad Angels to do the Job.
Then later in human history such views began to change as men started to develop the concept of a God that is so righteous and good that nothing bad or evil can come from him. Men developed the concept of Satan or the devil being responsible for all bad things while God is responsible for all Good things. This view was mostly seen in the New Testament were God was more of a kind and merciful God that can give only good things.
It is because of such changes that some people said, “God did not create man but men created God.”
