"God is in Control" Scripture adjustment

Under the "God is in control" narrative, many people believe that God exercises meticulous control over every single event that happens in our world. They believe that there is some divine plan behind every murder, rape, child molestation, robbery, terrorist attack, and natural disaster (Just name a few of the worse life events that God supposedly "decrees"). One only need to turn to any news channel to get a the latest update on the evil that God has supposedly ordained for His glory under this ideology.

Even when we point to Scripture that shows us that the devil rather than God is responsible, the hyper-sovereignty advocate insists that Satan cannot do anymore than God has commissioned (or "allowed") him. Under this philosophy, Satan is no more than a servant or "hit-man," doing what God pre-planned for him to do. There is no evil force opposing God and His righteous desires in this fatalistic doctrine. All that matters is that God has some secret will that He intends to accomplish through all of this evil He has brought about.

As the Muslim cries, “Allahu Akbar!” (“God is great!”) for every terrorist attack, the Christian fatalist cries, "God is in control" at every tragic event. Therefore, we have decided to assist the fatalist by adjusting the Scriptures to fit their narrative.

  1. Pretty brilliant.
    This verse troubles me because it seems to say that Satan is in charge. Does it read that way to you?
