    God made everyone, including the angels, mortal.

    But it was an angel that created evil by deciding to lie about his Father and corrupt the first members of his Human brothers.

    God had NO plan for evil to exist so that we would value our lives. It was not in the design of his purpose for the earth, and because of the corruption, put into action the means to undue the works of that angel, who we know as Satan, the Devil.

    (1 John 3:8) 8 He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has been sinning from [the] beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, namely, to break up the works of the Devil.

    (Hebrews 2:14, 15) 14 Therefore, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives.

    The description at Revelation chapters 21 and 22 shows the final outcome for mankind after the work that Jesus will finish in regards to the Devil and his final judgment. A world without death, pain and suffering. The complete healing of mankind and eternal blessings, that will NEVER have evil be active in the Universe again.

    God didn't really create us to die.He said to Adam ,later on this was revealed to Eve,: In the day that you eat of this tree you shall surely die" which causes one to think :had Adam and Eve not eaten the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil ...would we have lived forever? there was also in the garden of Eden the "tree of life" .Adam and Eve could have eaten from that tree instead and we'd all be living forever if we didn't already have that ability.I don't believe God per se created 'evil' but choices against God's will and commands has consequences/the opposite effect of what is good.doesn't it seem strange that 'the evil' and d-evil kinda are alike as if the devil is the originator of evil,he twists what God has given us in the instance of faith and twists it into fear/doubt which motivates him.what he does it perverts what God has given trying to copy God but puts an spin on it.Fear is just perverted faith,it's faith but faith in something bad happening not in something good which God says will happen once we take steps on/in the direction of what he's said will happen.

    I don't see what evil has to do with valuing your life more.

    If life was all goody goody but everyone was mortal, then life would be much more special. As it is now, if you're suffering there's no real value to your life.

    god did not create evil but satan formulized evil when he rebelled against God and took 1/3 of mthe angels with him.

    we created evil our selves because of the choice of free will, pride, ignorance, and hate.

    and that is why God destroyed the earth the first time; because he looked mintom the hearts and the minds of men and saw nothing but wickedness.

    so he choose Noah and his faithful family to replenish the earth to make a new start and promised that he would never destroy the whole earth again; but will let man , cultures, and nations destroy it for themselves and god himself will replenish it.

    God originally created mankind to be immortal and perfect.

    It is ultimately mans fault why we have a fallen nature , and mans fault why we are not immortal physically.

    The book of Genesis explains all the details.

    "Good" does not - cannot - exist experientially without its opposite. Therefore we have created evil, which is the backward motion, or opposite direction, of good. "Evil" is "live" spelled backwards!

    Actually it makes it absurd. God himself is absurd and deranged. But what can you do? It's the god we're stuck with and so we must worship it.

    All gods are myths, we evolved from lower life.
