When the Love of Self overpowers the Love of All, chaos ensues. This chaos is what people call evil.
Those that believe in the existence of evil have already put Self above All.

It makes you feel better to think that some "evil" entity is out there causing pain and suffering. Thats childish ignorance. There are only men who choose right action and men who choose wrong action. Evil is a fairy tale.
Evil is a fairy tale?? come on face reality for once in your life, put yourself in the shoes of those poor souls that were abused and poisoned in NAZI death camps and then talk again
Origin of Evil.
Here are my conclusions on the origin of Evil.
I cannot comprehend the view that a perfect, good; loving god of pure light could ever conceive the concept of evil in his totally pure and holy mind.
Evil is totally opposite to gods absolute goodness, completely alien to his innate intrinsic nature and essence. All evil is a monstrous abomination to God.
God is perfect and would, therefore, does not permit the concept of evil to originate or exist in his perfect holy mind or in his presence of pure light.
God is omnipotent (all-powerful), omnipresent (all - present) and omniscient (all - knowing) he is however not "everything" god is "light" and in him is no darkness whatsoever! , Therefore, "darkness" must be an external something separate from Himself.
I was shown an evil monster of almost infinite intelligence lurks in the deepest darkness of the void (hell), while there. It is this eternal monster that I believe tempted Lucifer, resulting in his downfall and his metamorphosis into Satan or the Devil. This monster is the complete opposite to god and dwells in utmost darkness deep, and very remote from god. I know this is true as I was shown this Malignant Monstrous Beast by an intelligence I took for God, while in the Void (HELL).
I was told that it is God's eternal enemy and the reason for evil and its origin and perpetuation. This thing is almost as mighty as God is himself! (Light against darkness). It seemed to be some type of antigod? There is an Anti-Christ-why not an Anti-God, Maybe they are one and the same evil being?
On what basis do I justify my previous statements? They are justified on the basis of my own personal terrible confrontation with this evil monster that lurks deep in the "Void" or hell. (Three times during brought on by near death episodes).
This "void" monster is worshiped by Satan and I am convinced is the ultimate source and origin of all evil. Satan did not confront me during one of my near death experiences, but by something almost infinitely worse! Satan is the prince of darkness, not the king of Evil! This thing is god's eternal enemy and has a diabolic almost infinite evil dark intelligence and power.
I experienced that God due to his innate perfection is forced to judge Evil (darkness) and remove it forever from his being. I felt this judgment more as an emotional separation from God, with feelings of utter darkness, desolation, despair, and fear terror, horror and everlasting dark cold hopelessness, the Void.
I was shown that totally depraved dark evil beings , would have to eternally exist, somewhere far together, forever, separate and remote from god's love and could never enter his light. (Darkness cannot penetrate the light!). Because of their utter evil depravity and darkness, totally
Evil and Depraved beings would never enter Gods light and would be forgotten by God in their own Evil Depraved Perversions forever in the Void" A terrible thought".
Contrary to mainstream Philosophy/Religion I hold the view that God is NOT omniscient and not strictly omnipotent. However, God is absolute Good. Since God is not omniscient, God can make an innocent error(creation of something evil). God is the highest power there is, and has the power to correct evil, however God can not correct evil immediately, because God is not strictly omnipotent.
Bottomline is, the Omniscience and strict Omnipotence of God are unsubstantiated claims by mainstream Philosophy/Religion.
