Saying "God is in Control" is Misleading
February 22, 2016 • By Ed Wrather
There are things that happen all the time that are not God's plan, not His will, although God knew they would happen. The Bible tells us not to be a fool and die before our time. Yet, people are foolish all the time hurting themselves and others. Is it God's will and plan for a murderer to kill someone? Does God control and make that happen? NO! But God can take those bad things and bring good out of them as Romans 8:28 says, but it is not automatic.
Ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden, all of creation has been corrupted, and bad things happen on planet earth that God is not controlling and making happen. But God does care, He cared so much that Jesus suffered and died a horrific death on the cross.
