I have heard conflicting thoughts on whether or not anything BAD that happens to a Christian must first be oked by God. Like what happened to Job. I have also heard that no, man has a free will and although God can and does sometimes intervine in that free will, he usually doesn't. I seem to believe the latter, for how do you explain Christians constantly hurting each other and fighting over non sin issues and petty things? I know God does use bad things to happen to help us grow and produce fruit. But I also know he is a God of love and wants his people to love each other and those in the world. Dealing with sin issues for restoration and love is one thing, attacking people just because you don't agree with them or you may not like their personality is another. How can this be from God? I was always taught you cannot build a doctrine on just ONE Bible verse. So if the first statement is true where else is this found besides Job?
