Hello, This is the question that I have in my mind for a very long time.. I believe in God. I believe that everything in the world is created by God. But the question is, if God created the world, God is the owner of the world, then why does Evil exists ? Why did God created the Evil too ? I don't understand .. Can someone explain ?

I have no problem with believing in God. I do have a bit of a problem with believing that God created the world. Where do you get your evidence for this? I do not believe that God created good or evil. We do not need God to do good or evil, the capacity for that is in our own hearts.

I agree completely... good or evil is completely relative. Soemthing which is good for one person might be evil for another. The same thing might be good or evil depending on the situation also. In my opinion, God does not need to create good or evil... that is man's creation.

The EVIL do not come from GOD, It comes from the people like you and me. We create the evil in the world. The way we chose our doing, thinking and the path we chose to go. GOD lives in you, my upinion is that GOD is your selfconfidence so, if you do nog have a selfconfidence, people chose the evil way becouse it´s simply the easiest way to go.

Maybe God created evil in order to test us all. To test our faith in him and his actions.

Why should God need to Test us ? We are all His children. No parent would like to test their children. Still I don't have the proper answer for this question. Thanks for your response anyway. ;)

God test us in order to show us what is in our hearts.

God created evil to give us a choice. God told Adam not to eat of the tree and he made a choice to eat and therefore caused sin to enter into the world. We always have a choice to do good or do evil in every situaation. But, we must be willing to reap the consequences of the choices that we make, whether good or evil.
