Did God create sins? God made humans according to Himself. Humans sin. So do sins originate from God? Why doesn't God destroy sins?

This is just for discussion. No offence. If there is any offence to you, I apologise.

Do sins exist themselves or are they created?

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." (Genesis 1:26)

If humans sin and man is made in the image of God, does sins originate from God? Can and did God create sins?

If sins do not originate from God, why doesn't He destroy sins with his almighty power? Why does He allow sins to exist?

    • May 27 2011: god is infinitely good. but i doubt if this contradicts the point that god created sins. if god made sins for a good cause, e.g. for the love of humans, then i don't think they contradict.
