Did God Create Evil?

Did God create Evil?  This will make you think for a while.

At a certain college, there was a professor with a reputation for being
tough on Christians.  At the first class every semester, he asked if anyone 
was a Christian and proceeded to degrade them and to mock their statement of
faith.   One semester, he asked the question and a young man raised his hand
when asked if anyone was a Christian.

The professor asked, "Did God make everything, young man?"  

He replied, "Yes sir He did!"  

The professor responded, "If God made everything, then He made evil."  

The student didn't have a response and the professor was happy to have once
again proved the Christian faith to be a myth.   

Then another man raised his hand and asked, "May I ask you something, sir?"

"Yes, you may," responded the professor.

The young man stood up and  said "Sir, is there such thing as cold?"  

"Of course there is, what kind of  question is that?  Haven't you ever been

The young man replied, "Actually, sir, cold doesn't exist.
What we consider to be cold, is really an absence of heat.  Absolute zero is
when there is absolutely no heat, but cold does not really exist.  We have
only created that term to describe how we feel when heat is not there."  

The young man continued, "Sir, is there such a thing as dark?"   

Once again, the professor responded "Of course there is."  

And once again, the student replied "Actually, sir, darkness does not exist.
Darkness is really only the absence of light.  Darkness is only a term 
man developed to describe what happens when there is no light present."  

Finally, the young man asked, "Sir, is there such thing as evil?"  

The professor responded, "Of course.  We have rapes, and murders and
violence everywhere in the world, those things are evil."   

The student replied, "Actually, sir, evil does not exist.  Evil is
simply the absence of God.  Evil is a term man developed to describe the 
absence of God.  God did not create evil.  It isn't like truth, or love, 
which exist as virtues like heat or light.  Evil is simply the state 
where God is not present, like cold without heat or darkness without light."

The professor had nothing to say............  

Be full of Christ today, there is no room for anything else.........  

Remember if you love your neighbor as yourself, pass this on!  

God Bless You!
