    Evil resides in minds.  It is not a temptation from others, it is a battle of one's own mind.

    Rather

    (we can more precisely say)"

    Evil is not a thing with substance. It is a descriptive noun, like when you use a color as a noun (e.g. "the color purple").

    Likewise with regard to good.

    These are not things with substance.

    That is correct. Good is all that is. Created by God. Evil is nothing more than a privation of good.

    Evil is the deprivation of good.

    Good and evil are not substances, instead, are conclusions. When a person declares a thing as good, it is as such. When a person calls something "evil", it is as such. Hence, they are terms open to subjective meanings. Bob thinks it is good that he gets to grill today. However, Marry, a vegan, believes grilling is evil since an animal gets killed to satisfy the palette. Bob disagrees with Marry and says that she's a hypocrite. She kills plants for her satisfaction as well. Bob considers this as an evil deed.

    Good and evil aren't substances, they're properties.

    Nah, good and evil are concepts invented by humans who aren't starving to death.
