What is evil, anyway?
I think it's letting another person choose your God for you. Letting another person tell you what God is, what God wants, and how God wants you to
act, instead of letting your God be. My God lets you be whatever you want, be it good or evil. Regardless of whether you consider yourself good or
evil, there is a question you have to ask. Did God make you be that way, or did you make Him to let you?
Becoming a slave to anything is counter-productive, imho. Giving up control of yourself to become a passerby in your own body can seem like freedom to
some. Specifically, the freedom to stop caring about the result of their actions and to just observe their own actions. Personally, I don't think God
wants us to observe. I think He wants us to actively observe, as He does. My God speaks when spoken to. He reacts when taunted, even though He usually
just laughs. That's what I love about my God. He laughs.
The devil deceives. But he does so at the behest of the one who controls him. What possible purpose would God have for the devil? Simple. To test us.
My God can't always tell us the truth, because then we really would be slaves. He has to mix in some lies so that we learn the difference between the
truth and a lie. I don't think his purpose is to make us distrust the devil, but to make us more intelligent. At least as intelligent as God Himself.
How else could we love Him as much as He loves us?
