Evil / Father of Evil

 

Occurrences:  Evil - 4  /  Father of Evil - 1

First Reference:  5th Endowment 15:65 / Enlightenment 1:1

 

While you this Heaven must maintain, to guard it from destruction; for it is certain that even the Gods would prove unable to withstand by force this Evil which is come upon us; being yourselves holy and filled with peace and joyful heart, being incapable of rage or fearsome indignation.

 

 

See:  Antipode, Darkness, Demiurge, Good, Light, Nemesis, Yaldabaoth

 

Summary:  While the concept of evil pre-existed Yaldabaoth, the Nemesis of God and Heaven, it wasn’t until the rise of the Chief Demiurgos and his attack against Heaven that evil became typified and exemplified by a sovereign, intelligent power (5:15:58-69). Thus, the proper term “Evil” signifies the powers, dominions, and principalities of Yaldabaoth (6:1:50), the “Father of Evil” (E:1:1).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

For there has leaped forth out of the Abyss some dark and terrible thing, even the Father of Evil has obscurity and dimness brought out of the womb of matter unformed.”

Enlightenment 1:1

 

And the portals of Heaven did quake and tremble before the struggle of Good and Evil, Light and Darkness; and there rushed forth from among the seven Ahmans, Dahmiel of Komah Seedrah, being himself the Ahman of all the realms of El Ramadee.

5th Endowment 17:2
