Please read in A Christian Pilgrimage blog the multipart discussion series on evil to understand what actually and exactly evil is, or whether there is really something called evil at all (please note that as of this writing in 2012 C.E. two further installments are yet to be published though parts and pieces of it is contained in this discussion topic as reworked extracts). Once these two last installments are published, the links to them below will be updated accordingly.
3a. Preamble To The Context Of Evil.4. The Context Of Evil.
Please read the chapter ‘Angels, Demons And Men’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’ by this author for the discussion on Satan the Devil and how he turned from being a fully sane, highly intelligent and righteous servant of GOD to embraced evil, and consequently lust fueled and lust driven insanity, as a recourse to the process and expression of his life.
The discussions on why GOD “couldn't” or “wouldn't” and didn't create all of HIS creatures personages (mankind and the Spirit Angel) all at the same time and instantaneously (i.e. “instant by fiat” whatever that may mean to those using this term) instead of through a lengthy multiple billions of earth years process is in two main multipart discussions:  ‘Why Did GOD Create Satan’ in the blog, ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’; and  the very lengthy multiple installments discussion ‘Why Create Life Through The Process Of Evolution’ in the blog ‘The Holy Bible Expounded’ which discuss the reasons why GOD would create life on earth through a multi billion years process instead of instantaneously (whatever that may mean) and then just some six thousand years ago create mankind in HIS image and likeness.
These two discussions together with another multi parts discussion ‘The Issues Of Reality’ in the blog ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’ all covered the crucial concepts and relating contexts pertaining to the creation as the ultimate reality for the creatures (all the intelligent creature personages) and discuss both what reality and what the creation ultimately is.
For the discussion on what actually is life as the endowment or consciousness essence of free will intelligent personages, please read the chapter ‘GOD IS’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’ and the multiple installments post series ‘What Is Life’ in the ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’ blog. To understand the issue of freewill, conscious self awareness and intelligence please also read the chapter, ‘Angels, Demons And Men’ for the discussion on why and what does it mean for GOD to create us with freewill, conscious self awareness and intelligence.
