If God is holy and good, where did evil come from?

Evil is not something that was created by God, rather it should be seen as a lack of good. God created man with free will – the ability to choose between right and wrong. Evil basically comes from the exercise of that free will in not following God. Being human means that we have responsibility for our own actions, whether they be good and bad.
