God causes things to happen. Nothing can happen by chance or by itself o d planned G them all.

. He said, everything I planned will come to pass ( Isaiah 46:10-11 NLT). God is the Creator of all things, both seen and unseen (Col. 1:16). God is the Creator of time, and all that transpired and come about through time. All things that happened and will happen are CAUSE by God. He creates and causes all circumstances to happen according to His plan. Since He is in control of everything and every situation, nothing could happen without God causing it. A bird shall not fall on the ground without God causing it to happen (Matt. 10:29 KJV). Therefore, all that God allows are also caused by God. Sometimes God allowed things to happen through an agency of His own choosing to take action of what He caused to happen, e.g. God allowed Satan to temp Eve, for it was in His plan to cause such thing to happen. The same way God allowed Satan to cause calamity in the life of Job. Think about this: Supposing it is only Gods foreknowledge for things to happen, does this mean there is another being causing things to happen where God based His overall plan? If it were, God, then, is only an observer of His foreknowledge from which He has no hand on it and no control over it as it comes to pass. The answer is: Such things can never happen, because God is Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent, and His control in everything is affirmed by the Scriptures. There is no Scripture in the Bible that implies that God has nothing to do with all things that comes to passmeaning they are not in His planit just happened by itself, or another power caused it to happen. The following Scriptures are very clear that everything that comes to pass are His works. Thats the reason He has the foreknowledge of them all, and even declares them before it happens. I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish I have said what I would do, and I will do it Isaiah 46:10-11 (NLT). Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite, Psalms 147:5. Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world, Acts 15:18. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be, Psalms 139:16. Gods foreknowledge are all His works that He designed and planned, that He declares the end of them from the beginning, even before they come to pass. Therefore, all that comes to pass are Gods decree or cause by God. Science has demonstrated that there is no effect without a cause. The first edict of the universe is cause and effect. God is the producer or the cause of every effect in the universe. God caused the universe to exist, and He cause for all things that happen in it, thus makes God in control of everythingfor known unto God all His works. The crucial question is: What when we sin, does God cause it? Does God cause us to lie? Does God cause us to do evil and wicked things? To say, Yes is blasphemous. How could God contradict Himself by violating His nature of holiness? Yet, it also violates His sovereignty by hinting that not everything that comes to pass and exist is caused by God. And to think it is the result of what He caused also ends up to Gods responsibility of the caused. Therefore, it is a false guilt of blasphemy to conclude that God cause evil. God can cause evil without contradicting His nature of holiness. God intentionally allowed man to sin because He has a purpose. Romans 11:32 says, For God has bound all men over to disobedience [Caused them to disobedience; His purposed is] so that he may have mercy on them all After the evil of sin and wickedness has served the purposed it will be completely eradicated forever. The evil of sin is a part of Gods plan 1

of salvation. Salvation is not only to save from death, also to mold man into the spiritual image of God. Since God is Sovereign and in control of everything and all things, He is therefore, the ultimate caused of both good and evil. When Adam was created he was in the innocent stage, i.e. not knowing good and evil. He must first experience the consequences of both of them through which man is being created in the image of God. God allows all things to happen whether good or evil in this world of sintheologians call the fallen world. God causes all things and everything as emphasized right at the beginning of this paper. BUT, when God has no direct action on anything, the word allow is appropriate rather than cause, even then, God is still the cause of what He allowed, for nothing could happen without God allowing it to happen whether good or bad it is axiomatic and irrefutable. If it is not God, who then could cause anything to transpire? Say, who? It follows then, the ultimate source of all causes is God. God could cause us not to sin, but because He has a purpose in His plan He allowed sin to happen. It is proper to say, though, God allows us to sin, rather than cause us to sin, not looking to the ultimate source of the caused. Somebody asked me a dirty question, such a man rape a child. God uses agency of His choosing to do the dirty job. God caused Satan to perform his role by allowing him to stimulate (to tempt if you will) mans sinful nature into action. God created man in His image; and to start with in molding man into His spiritual character God designed mans heart mentioned in Matthew 15:19 which is rebellious in nature and reaffirmed in Romans 3:10-18; 8:7. This attributes of man didnt happen by itself, it is caused and designed by God which is in His plan. God is taking the full responsibility of what He caused, by sending His only Son to show the way which is the process of creating man in the image of God. It is scripturally true that God allowed evil things to happen; it is simple, otherwise, it will not happen. Therefore, what God allows is also cause by God.

God is the Caused of Both Good and Evil

The following Scriptures shows God also causes evil, and God has a purposed in all He causes and allows. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and CREATE EVIL: I the LORD do ALL these things (Isaiah 45:7). The veracity of Isaiah 45:7 is reaffirmed by the following Scriptures: God created the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Gen. 2:9. God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the citizens of ShechemJudges 9:23. Saul's attendants said to him, "See, an EVIL SPIRIT from God is tormenting you, 1 Sam. 16:15. God used Satan to inflict EVIL upon Job. God pronounced EVIL upon King David that another man will come to his concubines before the eyes of Israel. The LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the LORD has declared DISASTER against you (1King 22:23). God, Himself, caused EVIL on His own people, where seventy thousand men alone died in 2 Samuel 24:10-15. GET THIS ONE: 2

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be EVIL in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? Amos 3:6. Let me make it clear at this point. God hate sin and He do not want man to live in sin, which is evil that caused destruction and deaththis is incompatible with Gods character and holiness. This is the reason why sin is in His plan. In this process of Gods plan the evil of sin will be eradicated forever. Evil is not good nor is it eternal. Nevertheless knowledge of evil is good and is eternal. All evil will take its place in the lake of fire, but a knowledge of evil is eternal just as sure our God, Who possesses a knowledge of evil, is eternal.
