I believe God is Sovereign. I want to make that clear from the beginning. It saddens me today that in so many Baptist circles this awesome truth is not expressed more. Perhaps this is because so many fear their misunderstandings concerning Calvinism. Anyway, my question is can God sin? Some calvinists go as far as to say that nothing happens that God does not want to happen, by extension this would mean God commits sin. As an example, it wasn't Islamic extremists but rather God to blame for the events on 9/11. Is this really want calvinism is saying or just rumor? I believe God is Sovereign but the Bible seems to teach that God in His Sovereignty gave mankind a free will. This in no way detracts from the power and authority of God but is rather an expression of it. God does not want to sin or to cause sin to happen, but "allows" it to happen within His Divine will. Psalm 2 makes it clear that God will fulfill what He desires to fulfill but doesn't He allow us the freedom to decide concerning salvation?
