That is not true. You hold God under the law of creation when He is the one who created those laws. God predestines all things, and uses all things to bring about His will. That includes sin. He didn't author it, He didn't create it, but if you learned anything from Job... God uses it.Some carry predestination to an absurd length. They believe that God predestines all things which would include all evils and lies.
Of course that is not the God of the Bible.
An example of the absurdities that this logically leads to is the murder of Abel.
If God predestined Cain to kill Abel, then it was really God that did it. Cain was no more than just a weapon in God's hand.
Apparently you have no idea how predestine works. You may want to go learn more.Another example is God predestines all things then God predestines all lies. But Jesus Christ is not the father of lies, Satan is.
Let's use your logic for a moment. The devil is the father of lies. God created the devil, the father of lies. God allowed him to rule over the world in lieu of Adam. God is omniscient, therefore knew exactly who the devil would be when He created him. So, what does that say using your logic? You have to be consistent. Come one, what does your logic say? Before you said:Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. - John 8:44
So if God predestined the devil, the father of lies, what does that mean in your logic, given what you said above?If God predestined Cain to kill Abel, then it was really God that did it.
This is just another example of you not understanding what scripture says.Another example is that the Israelites were at one time deceived into sacrificing their children to devils. But God said that it never came into His mind that they should do that. So God could not have predestined that evil.
"35 And they build the high places of Baal, that [are] in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come up on my heart to do this abomination, so as to cause Judah to sin." (YLT... ie Septuagint.)They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind: - Jeremiah 19:5
It never came into God's heart to command them to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through to Molech. The grammar is present in all the versions, however, when you don't understand how grammar works, you tend to miss it. Hence it helps to use other versions which care about grammar. This is God explaining for you that He is not the cause.
What are you talking about? God ordained everything. And so what if God predestined everything? Who are you to judge God to His face? Where is your fear, man? Consider Moses and Miriam and what God said to Miriam and Aaron. God asked them where is there fear when confronting God. Did they confront God? They didn't think so. They confronted Moses. However, God explained to them that Moses was and is God's choice, so to go up against Moses is to go up against God. You are treating God indirectly in the same way. What if God did predestine everything and you are wrong. What are you left with. All the things you said against God stand. God will ask you about it. Where is your fear? Why don't you think about what you write before you write it?And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. - Jeremiah 32:35
I know that many of the Reformed are into predestination. But there are differences of opinion.
What do you believe? Did God predestine all evils and all lies?
