Starwynd, hon, you start out with incomplete premises and use them to make a false conclusion. Remember, Job is one book in the Bible–you havet to read it in context. You have to remember that while it is quite possibly absolutely ‘literal’ it is also in addition more than literal; this question, this scenario is not something which happens to Job alone, nor are the various evils limited only to loss of propery/children/health, etc. etc.
There is such a thing as evil but evil is not something which is independent.
Evil is basically ‘spoiled good’. Every single evil action is based on taking something which is itself good and either misusing that good in an improper way, or suborning that good by ‘stopping’ it in an improper way.
Sex between husband and wife is good. . .but taking sex and using it between unmarried people, or in adultery, is evil. But the action of sex itself was created ‘good’. . .it is the misuse of sex which makes it evil for those who use it for evil.
Life is good. For a person to choose to cut short someone’s life (theirs or another’s) improperly is evil . . .but the ‘cutting short’ could not exist unless the life (which is good) had been there in the first place.
So you see, God is responsible for the good. WE are responsible for taking something good and either twisting it to evil or stopping it to create evil. . .but that evil is only based on attempting to manipulate something GOOD to begin with. Evil never exists ‘alone’. There is no action which is evil which is not a spoiling, cessation, or manipulation of something which is GOOD to begin with.
