    First off, God is good and only does good. He is not evil and cannot do or create evil. He does, however create an environment where He will allow evil to exist, just as He allowed evil to exist in the garden. Since He allows evil to exist, we therefore must make a choice to do good or evil, just as our salvation is a choice.
