      Evil appeared on earth when adam and eve ate from the tree of good and evil....eve first then adam. God created evil...why, because there has to be freewill a choice has to made...and evil gives you that choice. The serpent did not trick adam..he tricked eve, then eve talked adam into eating also...eve was deceived by the serpent adam was not.

      > I disagree....the first 2 humans..Adam and Eve were perfectly made inferior creatures to the angels and of course God.  God...being perfect...only has lesser creations not equal to himself so the math is against us from the start..the Bible tells us what to do to be solid in the Lord...even how to work eat sleep pray walk talk think act react etc....however...satan...being superior as an ex angel... blinds the minds and tricks and waits to strike when your weak and can even possess a body and spirit if it becomes weak in faith. He lies and if u believe he can't touch and test you...you may be evil already and not know it....or perhaps a saint undefiled...that's a master evil craftsman at work.  Even the apostle Paul was deceived to do his will and torture Christians until Jesus stopped him.   Job was harrassed and tested...and only Jesus...God's favorite and first son could resist him at his weakest point.  Man...not close enough to God....slayed
