Archelle Sols - If God is all present, all knowing, all good, and all powerful, where does evil come from?
Muhammad Rasheed - Evil is an action performed by lesser beings. God created the humans and gifted them with:
- Free Will - the freedom to live life as they choose for an appointed time.
- The Revealed Word of God - the instruction book to guide humans in how to best use their Free Will so they will win at life.
- Respite - that if the humans so choose to use their Free Will to perform evil acts in the earth, God will not punish them until the end of the appointed time.
