I was really curious to see other translations of this part (to see how Christians can justify God) so off I went to the Greek version.

Now that was interesting. While the Ancient Greek translation says "create bad things", the Modern Greek one goes like "I allow disasters and sorrows to happen". How hilariously convenient, huh?

Quick side note.

It's neat that you speak Greek....Ancient and Modern. Just sayin'. Thumbsup

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Matthew 24

32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
