    How fast can your car go? A hundred miles per hour? A hundred and twenty miles per hour? Who designed your car so that it can go so fast? I have an old Honda, not so fast, but it has over 250,000 miles on it and runs like a charm. It might go a hundred, but I never push it.

    Let's say I get pulled over in a 25 MPH school zone for going 45 MPH. Is that Honda's fault? Should Honda pay my fine because they built my car that is able to exceed all known speed limits?

    Try that argument in front of a judge next time you get a speeding ticket, see if it works. :laugh:

    Is God not the author of all?

    Does He author Sin Death Evil?

    or doe He redeem what others planned for Evil, turning around for good, and gets glory in it?

    Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
