From my understanding, evil is anything anti-creational. While God cannot sin, God is recorded as doing evil (or at least turning away from the evil he planned in direct contrast to not doing so with the flood). So Biblically, evil came when God first condemned man to be uncreated. The connotation that evil has today of being sinister does not come from God but rather comes from man who is not happy with the natural consequences of events in human history or in his personal history.
About 9,000 years ago or around there there was ONLY God. And He created everything. And he created a Angel and he was the pretiest of all the angels and he thought he should be In charge of eveything..so he tried to beet God. And Gos threw The pretty angel out to hell and made him ugly..and then when adam and eve sinned..
Evil came in the fallen angel Lucifer (whom we call by many names including 'devil' and 'satan') and his followers. It was allowed into the world when the first two humans chose to disobey God and give in to temptation to taste the forbidden fruit.
I venture to say that evil doesn't come from anything because it is essentially "anti-thing", as in any void of God's will and activity. All things that came to be are "from" God...God is not evil...evil must not be of creation...it is any possible negation of it.
That's good question (Strawberry) and as you all know I'm a systematic bible teacher and my answers will only come from the Inspired holy writ. Turn with me in your bibles to (Isaiah14:12-16) and the question was asked" How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer,son of the morning! If you look at verse 13 it says "For thou hast said in thine ((heart)), Now turn with me to (Ezekiel28:15,17) v.15 says "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou was created, till ((iniquity was found in thee.)) so as we can see it originated from the heart from the Devil. Now look at v.17 it says "Thine ((heart was lifted up)) because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom; so now let us turn to the new testament and continue of study on the origin of evil, turn to (St.John8:42-47) now look at v.44 in this verse Jesus tells you who is the author or originator or father of evil, he said " He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him, when he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: (((for he is a liar, and the (father) of it.))) So we can plainly see that the devil is the author of all evil and evil actions, now our last scripture is found in (1John3:8) and I quote " He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the (beginning). For this purpose was the son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. ((((My dear friends it was a true honor and pleasure to share with you the word of God out of a spirit of love, my prayer is that you would allow the son of God to set you totally free from Satan's evil grip by his power and I also pray that the word was enlightening as well as a blessing to your souls.

In the beginning, there was only the Holy Spirit of God that moved upon the Waters of Life, and Darkness covered it. God said "Let there be Light". It was spiritual light, not physical. THEN, God separated the Light from the Darkness. God separated that which was good from what was not good. However, when God created Heaven and all the hosts of it, they also had the knowledge of good and evil. So, evil had to have come from that separation of Light and Darkness, which became evil. The balance of this Universe exists in opposites, it's a universal law. So, when God created all that was "very good", it left a void, which Darkness cannot comprehend. So, evil came from the very beginning, when God SEPARATED Light from Darkness. All those answers about Satan, remember, Lucifer WAS an angel of Light, so evil did not come "from" him, so to speak. It was found IN him. Why are you asking such questions? Are you doing some kind of survey? (lol) 'Cuz you know a lot already. Who you playin' wif?
