Evil is inherent in his creation. That's all that matters.

Seems to me if anyone can do evil, then He would most likely do so due to Biblical stories and His qualifications.

Do you agree?

older parts of the OT affirm it. "God is good yet creates evil"

its in the torah, though Christian deny it and jews today down play what was written about their God in the torah itself.

God is usually defined as omnibenevolent which would therefore make him incapable of evil
that is the Catholic view. not affirmed in the Torah.

In 1st Testament it shows how he rages on everything, even when Saul saves animals to sacrifice for god, he punishes Saul, which is obviously unreasonable!
WTF you talking about? new testement is namby pamby - loving god, Saul denied the need for animal sacrifice, since his God - Jebus - died for all sins.

There's no talking about things, no reason, no forgiveness, destroying the temple twice! Enslaving all the jews.

Satan is the address for evil! Satan is also the doer of original sin! That is, if your father did something horrible, then his children may suffer from those crimes as well.
Satan is not in the Torah, just mentioned in two latter works of the Minor Prophets - where he seems to serve God, not oppose him.

If God is Goodness and evil is an absence of Goodness, then Evil is the absence of God

Sault was long before Jesus, get your simple facts straight! ..besides he's not god, he's just the son/a servant depending on christians or muslims.

When he hang on the cross he said "lord, lord have you forsaken me?" clearly showing that he is not god, but either the son/servant.

Can God do evil?
God cannot help but do evil, since the very concept that is god/daemon originates from the concept of the Good/Evil complex.
These are nothing more/less than projections of the human psyche onto a larger dramatic canvas.
