Most Christians believe He does. They believe God makes arbitrary decisions in the affairs of men. This idea that God is in control, often referred to as the sovereignty of God, creates significant challenges for believers today. It kills intimacy with God, causes confusion, and creates a victimhood mindset in followers of Jesus.
Fortunately it’s not true. God is not controlling everything that happens today. He is not responsible for all the evil in our world.
This short read exposes the Biblical truth of the matter, explains some of the problems this false idea of God creates in the lives of believers, and empowers the reader to experience God far more intimately as His children and heirs to His Kingdom.
Chris Cree was a merchant marine officer and flew off of aircraft carriers in jets with the US Navy. After leaving the Navy he spent 12 years working on the docks in various marine cargo operations positions. In 2007 Chris turned his blogging hobby into a new career developing websites, both in his own business as a freelancer and as an employee of a rapidly growing firm. This job change provided the flexibility to eventually leave the coast where the ships were, move to the mountains and go to Bible college.
Chris and his wife Lisa founded NewCREEations Ministries in 2013 as a vehicle to answer God’s call on their lives to guide believers into their full inheritance in the Kingdom of God. They live in Scotland as missionaries, where they lead a local campus of an international Bible college.
