I think that's what your pastor meant.

i have been listening to my pastor at church and when he was talking about
satan being evil and how he was going to be destroyed by god. that got me thinking, if god indeed destroys satan and evil than how will god exist,
there has to be a balance, if there would be no evil than how would we know what good is. unless god is the balance of good and evil and satan is the evil side of god. but no christian pastor will admit that god could be evil.
- and why did god even create evil, why would he want people to suffer?
can any one add something to this?
The word 'rule' sounds like legalism. 'Laws' and 'principles' seem to me what the LORD's government is built upon.
