At least this is how I learned it.
Lucifer had free will? Yes or no.

If yes, then mankind alone does not possess free will and the story falls apart.

Then it would seem that there is no evil then. Only a human construct which is relative to the culture. This seems to be the conclusion to which I keep arriving.
