Notice the trumpet, when God sounds a trumpet it usually means its a warning. If you don't listen to the warning, THEN the evil comes. Like when the prophets warned Israel several times in the bible, and they didn't listen, then evil came upon them as judgement. Not every single evil incident is done by God or has God's agenda in it.
God and the devil are both real. When God said he creates evil and darkness when he makes peace and light, one meaning the contrast between both when one is made. For example: Where there is no LAW, there is no transgression. When he makes light, darkness is revealed, when makes peace, evil and chaos is revealed.
Not only that, but no one can judge God's actions, God is justified and good in everything he does. If he sends evil, or creates darkness, it's because YOU did something wrong.
Hopefully I won't get in a big religious argument, I just wanted to post this.
again, one cannot exist without the other this is factual all the way down to the atom. it's opposition, duality - all for balance. before there was a understanding of "good" and "evil" it JUST
was. "god" cannot make opposite of "evil" to say they he does not have it in him or that it was/is anyone's fault. "good"/which is the same word "god" by dropping the "o" and "evil"/or what you call "devil" which is the same word "evil" by dropping the "d"..... is here because both are within the same boundaries before this creation of humans and societies etc.
according to you and i quote "If he sends evil, or creates darkness, it's because YOU did something wrong"
.... according to the bible, there is NO light, it was darkness and "god" created light thereof...so where was he? "god" IN/WAS darkness
...so it again existed beforehand in which he was himself IN/WAS darkness
......now, i will address the "you did something wrong" part
...according to the bible, for "god" to bring "evil"....the serpent tells "eve" that she will know "good" from "evil" and be as "gods" - now,if "evil" appears because a person does something (according to you)
then why did the serpent tell them that they shall know "good" from and "evil" if it comes after a person "does something"?....that is because it already existed without a person performing the action of "evil" even with some personification (i.e gun). further more, how do you commit the act of "evil" without it existing beforehand? this goes further into people making choices...the choices we chose are based on "good" and "evil" and exists without action that "good" and "evil" exists.
also, you said and i quote "Not every single evil incident is done by God or has God's agenda in it."
how can "god" biblically speaking create everything yet not have a agenda or have nothing to do with what happens YET created everything there is to know of creation? either, that is a contradiction or either "god" doesn't create everything. pick one!
see, it still confirms that "good" and "evil" (opposites) exists and it just is
, nothing a human does can alter that in the physical because you NEED both...again, down from the atom there is opposition further more, if "god" of the bible created everything then he created his very opposite or "they" exist within the same polarities.
