Quote :
It’s an age-old question on a microscopic level – did God create the “tiny evils” that spread disease and death throughout the world? If so, then isn’t He to blame for mankind’s suffering?

One of the most influential missiologists of the 20th Century didn’t think so.

Dr. Ralph D. Winter, who recently died at the age of 84, had argued that all violent forms of life – including all disease pathogens – are the works of an “intelligent evil power” that seeks to destroy God’s creation.

Nobody ever listens that disease, death, and suffering comes from sin and has been around only since the fall of man.

Also: all the little things we call disease: parasites, bacteria, viruses, etc. may have had a beneficial effect in the original, unsullied Creation. After the Fall and Curse, they underwent a fundamental change. I would think this scenario is more likely, given the cessation of Special Creation at the end of the first week. I don't think God would have created evil things as part of the Curse. Humans brought disease and death upon ourselves when we disobeyed God.

Similarly, the Second Law of Thermodynamics has been in effect since God created the universe. Only when the Fall and Curse happened did we start to notice its effects, because God withdrew His renewing power from the world. Eventually, this resulted in the world we know today (plus various bad stewardship practices and choices by humans).
