everything that exist can be used to help or harm, it has equal potential for both. If this is true, it connects the 2 sides of duality making good and evil the same thing.
think about it for a moment. We try to make laws to govern people, stealing is wrong, and yet, some mother steeling a loaf of bread to feed her children is not wrong. So all those dualities, light & dark, good & evil, right & wrong, they exist on a scale.
On the one side 100% good (as if this could exist), on the other 100% bad (equally as unlikely), a perfect blending from the one extreme to the other, all one thing. Then we come along, look at where we stand on that scale, and suddenly good and evil exist.
God didn't create evil, but the potential for evil exist within god. It is through our perspectives that evil (or good) is manifest.
so evil is not the absence of god, but rather the absence of the awareness of god (or it's helpful perspective)
of course this is just my opinion
In our dualistic experience, if god (all that is good) exist, then so too would the devil (all that is bad). Would we really want that?
