Heres something that confuses a little. When was the first ever sin? Was it the rebellion that lucifer committed when he was in heaven, or was "sin" something that was started by humans when eve in Gen 3:6 when she ate the fruit? I know that lucifer was cast out of heaven before eve sinned but I'm not sure if Lucifer, being an angelic being at the time, "sinned" in the same sense of the word that we know today. Now, onto my point.... Regardless of who sinned, the fact is that God can't sin, but, having free will at the start, man had the capacity to sin if he so chose, which he did. This being so, did God invent sin? He created everything right, so would this include every idea, or thing, from the beginning of time, including sin? If not then it would mean that man (or lucifer) started something out of nothing.....this seems like an attribute that only God can have...starting something, or creating something out of nothing. I hope you don't get the impression that I'm blaspheming by asking did God create sin...I don't believe He did, but I just don't know how to word it properly. The reason I ask is because I would like a concise way to explain it to somebody when they ask me who created sin, or the idea of sin..the programme in our DNA that gave Adam and Eve the capacity to sin right from the start. Thanks for any help.
