Isaiah 45:7 - I make peace, and create evil

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. 
-Isaiah 45:7
I have long argued that God is both a murderer and a savior. Check out this post ---|

Jehovah, the god of the Jews is absolutely correct here. God creates both good and evil as he himself admitted. Now I am a Valentinian gnostic and not a Marcionite to use the above verse as an evidence to prove that the god of the Jews was an evil god. We Valentinians respect the God of the Jews in believing that he is almost equivalent with the Holy Father in the Pleroma but he is just a lesser ignorant being than the beings in the Pleroma which resides above him.

Evil was created in the cosmos when the Holy Father in the above Pleroma made the choice to with hold the perfection of the Aeons with in himself. The Holy Father did not created us as perfect beings instead he created us with imperfection. There is no flaw in us but instead there is an inherent flaw in the very creation itself. The Holy Father in the Pleroma allowed evil to originate into existence when he decided to create us as ignorant beings. Evil exists as long as the ignorance of the father exists. Why did God created an imperfect world with imperfect beings? It is because he wants us to love him and he will give us back our perfection in return of returning to him out of love and humility. But, hey, how can he expect us to love him when he has not given any freedom whatsoever to make our own choices? No matter how much righteous you are and how much you consciously refuse to sin, God could always manipulate you and push you towards evil and make you sin and finally deny a place in the heaven which you longed for so much. God can elect anyone and reject anyone based on his personal whim. Saint Paul has advised us not to judge God's actions and choices. Where does this leave us? We have to lead our lives as slaves of God and be a part of his grand plan and blindly hope that one day God is going to free us from our bondage?
