Jack Ryan posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsGenesis: 15 Jehovah God took the man and settled him in the garden of Eʹden to cultivate it and to take care of it.n 16 Jehovah God also gave this command to the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction.o 17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will certainly die.” The teachings tell us that Adam and Eve eating from the tree of knowledge is what unleashed evil all over the world. Evil such as war, child sexual abuse, genocide, and all kinds of horrors. But if God made the tree, then he created the bad that went into it as well, no? Update: New World Translation: Isaiah 45:7 7 I form light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, Jehovah, am doing all these things. King James Version 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. American Standard Version 7 I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I am Jehovah, that doeth all these things.
