Sin was not part of the original creation, nor was it decreed by the Creator’s will.
Evil is not a created thing—it is not a creature and has no independent being. Evil has no standard as goodness does; it is a lack, a deficiency, a falling short of the standard of God’s perfect goodness.
All sin, no matter how trivial it may seem, falls short of moral perfection. God is always consistent with His perfect nature (Deuteronomy 32:4). All sin, therefore, must come from the creature, and the desire for evil comes from within the creature (James 1:14-15).
