    Where did evil come from?
  • Cowboy - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Anthony in the beginning there was no evil until the woman picked the forbidden fruit off of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Satan was in the world but had no power in the garden so Satan had to cause one of the creations to brake the command of God but eating the forbidden fruit. So, Satan used the serpent to talk to the woman, I say woman because she did not have a name except woman in the garden. In the garden all animals ate grass and talked to Adam it was a perfect place. God Bless stay prayed up and ready to go up Cowboy

    Proverbs Chapter 6

    16 These six things doth the LORD HATE: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

    17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

    19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
