What ever are you talking about man?Lamentations 3:38 King James Version (KJV)38 Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good? <<<<<<<<<<<< this is a question asked and not a statement. It is saying that ` both good and evil come from god ` no matter how much you - predictably- want to change it and wish it to mean something other than what it actually states.
More of your numerous false and word twisting accusations. Where did I imply it wasn't a question, or, but rather a statement?
I don't wish it to mean anything. I'll tell you what. I think you understand that the Hebrew translation for evil in that verse is ra. So with that understanding (I hope), give me the definition of that Hebrew word ra. Don't give me a definition of the English word evil.
And as much as you oppose cross-referencing other verses, which by the way is a valid and respected form of biblical study; comparing scripture with scripture, I'm going to do it anyway.
But he said unto her, “Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
What would you suggest evil, which is also translated from the Hebrew word ra means in this verse?
Genesis 44:34 King James Version (KJV)
34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ does not explain the origins of Evil.
I would suggest not jumping ahead of ourselves here. There seems to be at least 2 issues that I've seen. Specific verses that use the word evil that you claim prove that God created evil as the opposite of good in the moral sense. (God spoke the word and "poof", the desire to do wickedness, and God saw that it was good). And the question of where did evil originate? I might be wrong about this, but that's what I've perceived so far. If you can prove that the word evil in those specific verses you've given means that God created the desire to do evil, then there's no need to worry about it's origin.
A reason I'm suggesting we not jump too far ahead is that it will inevitably result in long tedious posts with multiple quotes in one post. And it's easy
to miss statements and quotes, thus leading to possible accusations of avoiding statements.
