#MicroMondays — “Evil is Not a Thing”

F1BB4F21-9993-43FB-8740-92D2C1018A5B“Yes, good and bad do exist,” Aaron said.

“And that’s my point,” replied Joe. “You say God is real and God created everything, right? So why did he create evil?”

Aaron responded, “Evil doesn’t exist on its own. It’s not a thing.”

“Is ‘good’ a thing?”

“Of course it is.”

“Did God create it?”


“So why did he create evil?”

This post was written for this week’s #MicroMondays challenge from fellow blogger, Varad. It requires a 61-word post that includes the prompt, “Good and bad do exist.” Apparently the 61-word limit for this challenge was assigned because the quoted words appear on page 61 of the book from which they were taken. Yeah, that seems kinda random to me, too.

    The fun is in writing for a prompt that is random, eh Fandango? Nice take on the prompt with the age-old never-ending discussion on Good and Evil. Welcome to #MicroMondays.

    One of many questions I would have for God if I ever met him/her/it.

    Nicely done.

    I always felt that God created us with the capacity for both good and evil and free will. It’s up to us to decide which we choose.
