    When you become a God, will you use evil the way God does?

    Matthew 5:48
    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    I don’t know your view of evil or how you explain it but much of scriptures say that at some future in heaven, we will become as God and to me that would mean that we all inherit a new earth. Anything less would be less than what Satan has been given. Dominion over the earth. God would hardly give man less. I assume here that like humans, God would want his children to reach his level of thought and responsibilities and then some. God would then become God of Gods.

    Believers, should have no problem imagining the scenario above and should be able to show why they would allow evil to exist on their own make believe world.

    No definitive conclusion has ever been presented and accepted by any majority as to why God created and uses evil. To evolutionary theists, it must exist to further the survival of the fittest and what keeps man evolving. Without it we would face a greater evil. Extinction.

    To some theists, it is to test us and weed out the unworthy or less fit. Yet many theists not believe in evolution even as God weeds out the less fit. Causing heavenly evolution, so to speak.

    As a Gnostic Christian, I have no problem reconciling evil with reality. To me, within evolution, evil is good. Somewhat the way a God would think. I would not get rid of it as I see it’s ultimate requirement and in that sense, evil is good as it serves the greater good. Evolution. Theistic evolutionists agree.

    Free will is not a valid argument if we must do evil to survive. Evolution demands both evil/competition and good/cooperation.

    Would you allow evil to exist on your fictitious world, like God or nature does here in our real world?

    If yes, why would you keep and use evil?

    If no, how would your world work if you did somehow get rid of evil?

      There's a few fundamental flaws I see in your interpretation of the Bible. "God uses evil"
      This interpretation contradicts the concept of God, who is omnibenevolent. An all-loving God cannot do something against his nature - which is love. "God is love" 1 John 4:8
      Rather, the god of this world uses evil. If a god uses evil, it certainly won't be Jehovah.

      I'm not well versed in the end-times, but the gist of the future prophecies depicts an end of Satan's reign, the world we live in, and evil itself.

      I would argue the greater good is love: "30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12

      Hmmmm.  Not sure what "scriptures" you are referring to.  Other than Satan lying to Eve in the garden, you won't find this taught in the bible.  Perhaps you are referring to the book of Mormon.  You might find something like this there.

        Actually, if you paste a paragraph of his comment into Google, you can see it's just a copied argument floating around.
