    Does the award for the greatest evil go to Satan or God?

    Many blame Satan for the evils of this world even as his power to deceive all of us comes from God.

    As the creator of Satan, many think that God deserves the blame as he knew what Satan would be because God knows everything in advance.

    What is the greatest evil you can think of and who do you think is to blame for it?

    Who is the greatest sinner, Satan or God?

    I lean toward God as scriptures name him the Alpha and Omega which to me means the best and the worse. Also, scriptures have God saying not to place any other above him and I would be going against this by placing Satan above him in the category of the most evil. I do not want to break the first commandment.

    Do you dare by putting Satan above God?

    Regards

    You're not breaking the first commandant unless you worship Satan.
    Alpha and Omega have nothing to do with best or worst. It refers to the beginning and the end. The first and last letters of the Greek alphabet.
    God is the absence of sin. Satan, the perpetuation of it. Man, the target of it.

    "What is the greatest evil you can think of ? "
    The US government.
    "who do you think is to blame for it?"
    The voting public, both at the polls and shopping with money they don't actually have without knowing(or caring about) the outcomes of their choices.

    Who are you voting for ? " The feller wiff the (*) beside his name, same as my daddy and granpappy dun too.

    Ah. You're headed out shopping huh, Where ? "Wherever they gots the best deal"
    Walmart huh ? "I reckon. They loves murka and are a 100% murkin cumpney.Best price guaroonteeded"

    Just a fleeting thought, Is it possible that while God knew what satan would become it was ineviitable no matter what God created? What if in Gods world there is an unchangable default setting, where good is, so must evil be to keep balance.

    Of course we could not know what ''good" is without knowing "evil". That is how our perceptions work. That is one of our weak points because we are not sufficiently aware of it. All knowledge, all terms, all faith, all belief, all concepts are relative to humans. None exist 'out there'. The universe is not good or bad and knows nothing at all, except in the sense that we are in it and part of it. Thus, we essentially create reality; up and down, in and out, good and bad, left and right.

    If God exists, you can only know it from within.
