For me, it is rather puzzling that Heavenly Father would allow evil to exist in presence and knowing full well that Lucifer would becoming evil before he was cast out of heaven due to his rebellious behavior. It is difficult to me to grasp this concept because it undermines God's logic reasoning for creating this evil creature.
I thought that God can not create anything that is evil, because is perfectly good and an loving God. Although, logically I can see that by having Satan exist; this may be the only way to determine whether obey or rebell against him and that is wants us to prove to him that we are worthy stand in presence once we depart from this earth. However, The question remains in my mind; is that God must have full knowledge of evil, inspite of the fact that all loving and in every way, shape, or form.Yet, it contradicts his nature! Do you see my dilemma in attempting understand the nature of God! Any thoughts, suggestions, comments would be helpful?
Thanks for answering my questions!
