Any monotheist who acknowledges the existence of evil has a problem. If there is but one God, the creator of all things, can we by recognizing evil as a real thing do more than ascribe that evil to God? To assume a God that is both evil and good, assumes, as Revelation testifies, a God incapable of the least action, a monster whose every act is negated by His alter ego. Obviously we worship no such God. God is not the author of evil. Its cause must exist outside the Divine. But what is evil?
