    It's difficult to explain evil because it's a spirit not a person. Thus it invades the consciousness and effects the the way a person acts. They can be obsessed and then they start doing things that cause chaos. It's a very real challenge to humanity that God wanted to exist. It's nothing we can do about it. We are charged to live with it.

    The obsessed person does not know they are obsessed, I just finished speaking with one. Evil flows freely within them, masked and growing. The human consciousness is easily invaded, but expertly invaded. Yes evil is an expert.

    Evil is far stronger than any human. It was designed to confront us. And nag us each day.

    Yet the nagging is designed to make us fight evil and grow from the e experience. Like developing muscles using weight , we need an opposing force.

    And that opposition is evil, it was designed to disrupt. Evil is a spirit , created by a spirit being. And that's what's hard to believe that there is a spirit world. Beings that exist which we know little of.

    Re: The trouble with explaining evil existing along with God.

    God did something astounding in Romans 11:32"For God has shut them all in unbelief, so that he will have mercy on them all.". A stunning truth, it is God who placed people into the condition of unbelief. This is why people do not believe in him and it's why God is not holding it against them, he will later have mercy on them all. And this is just how it is. Wisdom is knowing how it is.

    Just how are you going to explain evil and square it with the Bible? Oh it can be done.

    Evil is relative

    I think it's relative to itself.
