If God Didn’t Create Evil, Why was I Born into Sin?
by Erich Jeremiah Rose
Inquiring minds want to know―if the Bible claims that I was born into sin, then who created evil? Would we consider this a fair assessment? It depends on why there is a sudden push to be free from serving such quasi-religious thinking. Most would shrug off the question simply because it wouldn’t even appear ethical to question God, however, in arguments like this, it would be tempting to play the devil’s advocate internally. But before you grab that trident with enthusiasm, let’s carefully dissect the context before swiftly caricaturizing the word “evil”.
The approach should bring us to the Word of God, and it should be examined from a Hebraic and biblical context of contrast.
