Unfortunately, there are some individuals who believe that God created evil and Satan. This belief or concept is inaccurate and completely untrue. God is all good and does not do anything evil. God cannot lie or even deceive. So how did evil come about and how was Satan created? Simply, evil was created by Lucifer.
When Lucifer, also known as the ‘dawn of light’, used his free will and chose to oppose God and reject God’s authority, evil was born. Lucifer’s rebellion against God created what we know today as evil. In addition, Lucifer became Satan when he was cast out of Heaven by God to the earth along with one third of the angels that chose Lucifer over God. As you can see, evil was the result of Lucifer’s free will and rejecting God’s authority. It is easy to understand now that it was not God that created evil or created Satan. Satan created himself and evil. Now, when you see evil here on earth, you know it is Satan!!
