Evil and Sufferings

Where is the source of evil and sufferings...Satan or God?

The mainline of evil came from the heavenly beings that fell in Gen 6. Then the disobedient spirits of the Babel story. Read Gen 3, Gen 6, Deut 32 and Psalm 82 to get a feel for where that major depravity came from. Sure Adam gave us the loss of immortality, but the other beings made sure we would follow a path of much deeper depravity. They gave us weapons, drugs and general debauchery. That is what any first century Jew or Israeli would tell you.

This is very close to the unpardonable sin. God cannot be the author  of sin and evil.

Maybe a bit of reasoning will help with this.

If we know that God is love 1 Jn 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Pure love is other-centered and if God is other-centered then it stands to reason the opposite, self-centered is evil

This selfishness is so pervasive  in the "I wills" of Satan's fall as described in Isaiah 14: 12-   In these he is completely consumed by the desire to be above all, with no concern for any others. This is something we are seeing quite prevalent today it's result is a lot of hatred and ill will towards others resulting in no ability to enjoy the "successes" of others.

It cannot be God because there is no evil in Him.  Satan became proud and tried to overthrow God in heaven, so he and 1/3 of the angels were kicked out of heaven.  We are told that in the millenium  satan will be bound and people have the option of evil, which they again choose.
