..but if we can't get past this bit, that god occasionally creates evil in the present tense, we'll never get to the next two: that god creates all evil, and that god first created evil. these are relatively easily demonstrated from scripture, if i can just get you to agree first off to take it at face value.

This is a belief issue. Personally, I have always held the view that while God DID create a freewill Lucifer, He never made Lucifer turn into a rebellious (evil) being. Kinda like if I made a firecracker but never lit the fuse, would I be responsible for the "bang"?

This is merely my personal opinion on a belief subject, however.
