Thank you bro. Allan for your defense of me. I do disagree with my bro. John. God is not the author of sin. He does create evil in the form of calamity in His righteous judgement. Whether we are calvinist or non calvinist, we all have the problem of God allowing people to come into existence knowing they will never receive Jesus as Lord. It is our problem however, and not God's. I intend to ask Him someday.... but He may just say "who are you man to answer back to God". I believe that He does have the right to dispose of His creation as He sees fit. It is His. I believe that satan and his angels are some of God's hardest working agents. God uses evil for His glory. The story of Joseph for example. God's Word says that God can not sin, so I believe it. God is big enough to use whatever means to accomplish His purposes without being the author of sin. Thank you bro. Allan. You still own the farm. I'll be gone for a few more days. I miss the bb. I need to feed my addiction.......lol.
