Did God create evil?

From Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica: "But evil has no formal cause, rather is it a privation of form; likewise, neither has it a final cause, but rather is it a privation of order to the proper end; since not only the end has the nature of good, but also the useful, which is ordered to the end. Evil, however, has a cause by way of an agent, not directly, but accidentally."
Alex Eylar illustrates this nicely in LEGO form.

  1. It is written in Jer 31:22 that the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth, a woman shall compass a man.
    The man is Satan (Isa 14:16).
    It is written in Gen 3:15 that a woman will bruise Satan at the heel of time.
    The heel of time is of the feet of Dan 2:33 a time not long before the return of Christ.
    The bruise of Satan is the testimony of Jesus which is the spirit of this prophecy (Rev 19:10).
    The Gospel of Jesus Christ is now again being preached to the world as a witness and then the end will come. His Gospel of grace was soon removed not long after his death (Gal 1:6).
    It is written in Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; (him) shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
    The word (him) is Strong's #846 and means she.
    God raised me up of the brethren of the Laodicean church. This church had an opportunity to become hot, they refused to hear. Rev 3:17 says the Laodiceans are rich they think they do not need any further teaching. Their minds are closed. Christ’s word is going to the world without respect of persons.
    It is written in Acts 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from among the people.
    It is the time of the restitution of all things (Acts 3:21) to prepare a people for the lords return.
    It is written in Jer 5:21-27 Do not be a foolish people without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: verse 23 do not have a revolting and a rebellious heart: or you will be destroyed verse 27 your churches are full of deceit; therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
    Satan has deceived the whole world, until this bruise of truth delivered by a woman Rev 12. Check out the brusing of Satan at .
    There you will find the reason for evil
