The Ministry of Evil: With Replies to Critics Also a Study of the Future Life (Classic Reprint)
Feeling that the more or less accepted theories of evil are as incompatible with truth as they are inconsistent with each other, I have endeavored to present a view, which, to say the least, does not dishonor God's character nor contradict the Bible. I believe that the true theory of evil does not make God in any degree responsible for its existence, that it does not give Satan a free hand in the moral disturbance of God's universe, and that it does not imply the permanence of evil either in active or passive form.
In the creation of high orders of beings endowed with free will, the possibility of evil becomes necessary. The power of free choice implies both good and evil as possible. And this is as true of God as it is of His moral creatures, for He is free. He cannot confer a power which He does not possess.
The will, or power of free choice, in each free agent is one faculty.
