The Bible dictates ‘Everything that IS comes from God’- wouldn’t it then stand to reason that ‘evil’ also came from God?

…And in the same breath they say God is perfect and ultimately good.
Humans exist with a potential for good or evil. You have the News, this is common knowledge, but where does that darkness in us originate?
He made man in His image, yet there was darkness in us from the beginning.
He made Lucifer and the angels, yet there was darkness in him and some of them as well…
All that exists does so solely through Him.
With that in mind and following those Biblical ideas- God then has the same potential – only He chooses the goodness and light.
And wouldn’t that make Him an even a better God? A God that chose His goodness?
Heroes too perfect are never believable.
After all, our God is an Awesome God.

God creates light, and the absence of light is darkness.
God gives us knowledge, and the absence of knowledge
God tells us that obedience to Him is good, and absence
of obedience is bad.
God sends down His Messengers, with Holy Books, to
teach human beings to make good choice, by practicing
Monkeys are not endowed with free will, so they are
happy with the life of no choice. Hence, evil is not the
creation of God, but it is the fruit of human choice.
Now, it is up to us to learn how to thankfully use the
free will that God graciously gives to the children that
He creates in His spiritual image and likeness.
