Who is in Control ?
I’m amazed that I still hear ministers – and some who really should know better – say things like, “No matter what happens, we must remember that God is always in control.”
This is the language of the faulty “Sovereignty of God” doctrine that lays thick and strong in the doctrinal foundation of many believers and ministers.
This doctrine is errant, fundamentally flawed, and a hindrance to faith. It dis-orients believers in their relationship with God, with Satan, and with events that surround their lives.
There are 3 “Players” in the game here on earth — God and His angels, Satan and his cohorts, and Man. These 3 “players” have a right to act on earth and are, in fact, active in seeking to bring their own will to bear on the planet.
Sometimes Man teams up with Satan. When he does, havoc, ruin, sin, deception, destruction, brokenness, and darkness ensue.
Sometimes Man teams up with God. When he does, healing, peace, joy, wisdom, strength, light, truth, and goodness begin to prevail.
Sometimes Man operates alone. Sometimes God operates alone. Sometimes Satan operates alone.
Make no mistake — These 3 “Players” have rights to Act on planet earth and Are Active on the planet. And the result? God is Not always in control.
