Is God responsible for sin?

I just watched a talk by Ed Feser on YouTube entitled "Edward Feser "Classical Theism and the Nature of God""
He talked about the idea that things can only exist in reality if they first exist in the intellect of God. He gave as examples roundess and redness.
Which made me think - "what about sin?"  Can sin only exist in reality if it first exists in God's intellect? I learned years ago that God did not create sin but that we did (do) by taking the good things that God has made and twisting them into evil to suit our own purposes (i.e.: God created sex - a good thing -  but then we take that good thing and create pornography and prostitution). But is it right to say they we could only create sin if it first existed in the intellect of God? So we could only create pornography if it first existed in God's mind.
Something in this doesn't seem right to me.
Would love to hear your thoughts

Hi Bellarmine,

Thanks for posting. The forum has moved to

Do you mind reposting your question there? I don't think anyone still checks this forum.

Re: Is God responsible for sin?

apparently DMT can help people meet "God", which is an alleged collection of entities that are omniscient and communicate with love and understanding... they could be what we are judged by in the afterlife, and have the potential to join or be castaways
