If God created everything, then how did he not create evil?

If everything we do is under God's control, then what is free will? And if free will does not exist, why would we be punished for something that God controls?

Hee hee, I love theology debates.

I'd say that the Devil created evil. The Lord created free will and thus released us from His (capital H) control, but we will be punished if we stray too far.

God created an enviroment in which evil is possible. God created a man who had a will similar to God's (i.e. the ability to choose from right and wrong). Man chose what was wrong, and hence, evil entered the world.

anyone here a reader of Ludwig Wittgenstein. If you are familuar with his writings, an underestanding of tautologies comes in handy here..........sorta. :)

I think we're getting considerably off topic.

I live in the netherlands so I am not allowed to vote, but if I was allowed I would surely NOT vote for bush although I wouldn't vote for kerry either.

If I knew ahead of time that voting for Bush would delay me in being allowed to load phpbb2.2 I'd have chose to not vote :) I care more about getting phpbb2 than I do about bush being elected.

That being said - the main reason I voted was to keep Kerry OUT of office. I believe Bush is the lesser of two evils.

You kerry people just remember: I bet you Kerry would have sat in the Oval Office and used some quasi-perl scripted forum software (maybe YaBB, perhaps). I's bet you anything Bush is a PhpBB guy! :D :lol:

I'm personally amazed that nobody seems to have noticed that the two policies which won him the election (Abortion & Gay marrige) are bordering on being unconstitutional.
More specifically the clase that says religion & politics should be seperated. His policies are based on his funementalist christian views - Probably somthing to do with as to why the 'bible belt' states all voted for him...
It's still quite amusing that it's illigal for same sex couples to marry, but your sister is still 'morally' okay in those areas.
If there is one thing that irritates me more than stupidity, it's bible bashers / fundementalist christians. Unfortunately, Bush is all 3. Especially stupid.
