LESSON 13

GOD’S NOT GUILTY
By Andrew Wommack

Today I want to share one of the most important things God has ever done in my life.
It seems people automatically believe everything that happens to them is from God, that He controls everything.

The reason for this is that by definition, God is supreme and all-powerful, and they just
assume He controls everything that happens in their lives. Even unbelievers believe it.

There are many Christians who promote this doctrine, and it has become ingrained in their lives. I believe what Scripture teaches is contrary to this, and it’s very important that you learn this lesson.

James 1:13-17 says, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempt he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own
lust, and enticed.

Then when lust hath conceived, it bring forth sin: and sin, when it is finished,
bring forth death. Do not err, my brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and come down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variables, neither shadow of turning.”

These verses make it very clear that God is the author of the good things. Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief come not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might
have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

If it’s good, it’s God; if it’s bad, it’s the devil.
That’s very simple theology.

The reason this is so critical is because
James 4:7 says,“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

This says we have to submit, or yield control, to God and resist the devil.

The word “resist” means to actively fight against.
When people believe everything that happens in life is totally from God—for example,
sickness, failure in business, losing a job, rebellious children, or divorce—that puts them in the position of being passive.

If they really believe God is the author of a situation and is using it to punish them or change them, they would be fighting against Him if they resist.

Yet, James 4:7 says to
resist the devil and he will flee from you. You have to submit yourself to God. This shows that certain things are of God and certain things are of the devil.

There is a force of evil in this world, and not
everything that happens in your life comes from God. If you don’t understand that, you will end up submitting to the devil, and actually empowering Satan.

I want to bring out a passage in Romans because it is misused so often. I’ve actually been to funerals where people don’t know anything about God, don’t go to church, and know hardly any
Scripture, but they know this one.

Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

This has been interpreted to say that whatever happens in your life, God does it and works it together for good
in some way.

I actually was at a funeral for a young boy and girl who had been mixing alcohol and *[LESSON 13 GOD’S NOT GUILTY] drugs, got into a car, drove too fast on a slick road, slid around a corner, hit a telephone pole, and
were both killed.

The preacher quoted this Scripture, “We know all things work together for good,” and said God must have a purpose in doing this.

** Note added by blogger: Of an Example of a {A false conclusion or a Personnel attack against some misplaced or understood statement!
Which is Ad hominem abusive, often referred to as “personal attack”, is likely the most common type of ad hominem argument, as well as one of the most common logical fallacies. It fallaciously focuses on the person behind the argument, rather than on the argument itself.}
========================

God didn’t kill those teenagers, and in a sense, you
can’t even say the devil did it. It was the teenagers. I’m sure the devil enticed them to rebel against the standards their parents and others had taught them, but ultimately it was their choice. They’re the
ones who did the dope and alcohol; they’re the ones that hit the telephone pole. That was a natural thing, and God wasn’t the source of it.

What does it mean when it says “we know that all things work together for good” ?

First of all, it didn’t say we know all things come from God and work together for good.
It says all things work together for good but puts qualifications on it: “to them that love God.”

This Scripture doesn’t work for a person who doesn’t love God. That is so obvious that it should go without saying, but it is amazing how people apply it toward instances like these young people who were doing drugs and alcohol and were in total rebellion against God and His disciplines.
This says it only works together for good to those who love God, and to those that are the called according to his purpose.

In 1 John 3:8 it says,“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” God manifested Himself to destroy Satan’s work. That’s His purpose, and it will only work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose; that is,
those who are walking in this calling, are resisting the devil, and are out to destroy his works.

Those who are resisting the devil and living for God can say that regardless of what the devil does in their
lives, God can turn it around and use it for good.
We need to start discerning that God does not control everything in our lives.

There is an enemy that comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but Jesus has come to give us life. We have to choose life
and willfully recognize that God’s not guilty of everything that comes into our lives.

If God was a physical human being who did the things He is accused of, such as putting
cancer, deformities, depression, sorrow, and grief on people, I guarantee there isn’t a government on earth that wouldn’t arrest, imprison, or try to stop Him. Yet we think God, who is much more merciful than any person we’ve met or imagined in our lives, is going around striking people and
doing this.

There are some things that are demonic attacks and some that are natural, and not all
disasters are God ordained. The insurance companies write in their policies “acts of God, such as earthquakes and pestilence.” No, God is not the author of all these things.
