The Doctrine of Providence - Part Three
At this point, however, we must be careful or it will appear as if God is responsible for bad actions as well as good ones. But this is never the case. The Bible never directly attributes sin or evil to God. It is always the direct action and responsibility of the one who actually sins. But just because God is not directly involved and is not guilty of wrongdoing does not mean that he is inactive. God is working simultaneously, but indirectly, to accomplish his purposes. As the God of providence his actions are concurrent with those of his creatures though he is always good, upright and holy.
