I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
God did not create evil directly, but indirectly, as He created angels and men who are capable of sinning and hence committing evil. Two beings, who represent the pinnacle of evil, are Satan and Hitler. One is a fallen angel and the other is a fallen man. God did not directly create Satan and Hitler. God created a holy angel called Lucifer who rebelled and became Satan. In a similar way, God created our first parents Adam and Eve, who were holy people before they sinned and ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, under the temptation of Satan. All descendants of Adam and Eve are born with a sinful nature. Hitler was born with a sinful nature.
God has complete foreknowledge of everything that happens in His creation; therefore, the sins of fallen angels and of fallen men did not take Him by surprise.
