Once we affirm the gospel truth that God is responsible for everything everywhere, even Christians are confronted with a dilemma. If God is the author of everything, how can man be held responsible for his actions? Is God also the author of our sins? Does the scripture not say: “Don't blame God when you are tempted! God cannot be tempted by evil, and he doesn't use evil to tempt others. We are tempted by our own desires?” (James 1:13-14).
