  1. Really it is commob sense,
    And it is YHWH’S Basic Principle in His Creation.
    If people would only repent and become born of YHWH,
    And be drawn to read, meditate, eat, digest, pray, do, and pass on,
    All these things would be known and understood because4 through His Word & Words is Wisdom.

  2. You said evil is the default and not manufactured by God, but that contradicts Isa 45:7 which states that He created evil
     Is 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    • Hello Elsa. Please read the post carefully because I referenced that verse in Isaiah. I’m not saying He didn’t “create evil” because the bible clearly says that. But He didn’t create it in the sense that He manufactured it like He did light. Please read the post. Thank you for stopping by. Shalom 🙂

  3. If there is only light in heaven, how did it happen that Lucifer and subsequent “sons of god” came to be evil?

    • Hello Holly,

      Lucifer became evil because pride was found in him: “Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor.” Ezek 28:17

      He also wanted to be equal with God: “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!…For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.”

      So that’s how Satan fell. Man fell in the garden after being deceived by Satan.

      Some denominations teach that the angels and people have no “free will” which is false because the bible is filled with examples. Angels and people can choose whether or not they want to do evil and sin. Angels don’t have a natural propensity to sin, like we do, because they’re not born in sin, like we are. Pride had taken root in Lucifer and he elevated himself above God and THAT elevation is what brought sin on in him and other angels who followed him. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
