Question: Did God create evil or is evil the absence of good?

Answer: God created a system which allows evil to exist, but evil did not originate in God. Evil is the absence or antithesis of good. Good, however, is more powerful than evil, just as light is more powerful than darkness. This is why Paul writes, 'Overcome evil with good' (Romans 12:21).
