The Judaic Theory of Evil


Jewish people believe God created evil. They think he created evil to allow people the great gift of free will to choose between good and evil, to reward them for choosing good and punish them for choosing evil.

They holds that all people sin at various points in their lives and that when violators of the Torah are not severely punished and the Torah ceases to be respected .

... they argue and fight, commit adultery, steal

Evil can be prevented by respecting others as well as there belongings. Don't commit adultery.
