Node Text: Evil exists so that Free Will may be maintained

We assume the following in order to get to the interesting thesis above:

God would normally be literally everything. But God contracts so that a void may exist, a void filled by Creation. While God could prevent evil from taking place, out of love God chooses to let Creation be free. God may or may not sit in final judgment over all Creation -- that is at God's discretion. This argument is only that God's allowing for Free Will necessitates the possibility of evil.
