God did not create evil. Evil exists from eternity to eternity. It means that evil was never created/it has no absolute beginning, evil will never be destroyed/it has no absolute end.

Not sure what you are saying here because the bible says God created evil

Isaiah 45:77 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

I checked the above and it is in the Hebrew too.

HAHAHA Welcome to my world HAHAHHAHAH

I could, if I choose to reply to more of your posts I will do this.

Ah, condescending and passive-aggressive. Well done.

If I had evidence I wouldn't need faith.

What evidence do you have that the Holy Ghost exists and has any influence on scripture? You can believe something with all your might, but that doesn't make it true. Consider

Burmese Buddhists probably did. And there was that sect that released Sarin gas into the Tokyo subway system which is arguably just as bad. And we do know that the Buddhist offshoot Shintoists did in Nanking.
