    God Taking Responsibility in the Old Testament

    God Taking Responsibility in the Old Testament

    Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man (James 1:13)

    As most of us are aware, the Bible, though a divinely inspired book, has some troubling passages. Scripture reveals that God is loving, merciful, kind, gracious, forgiving, patient, longsuffering, etc. We learn that He hates evil and is compassionate towards those who suffer from it. But then we are told in this very same book that He afflicts with sickness and disease, brings disaster, deceives, tempts, gives people evil spirits, creates evil, hardens hearts, moves men to do evil, etc.

    Hosea 6:1
    Come, and let us return to the Lord;
    For He has torn, but He will heal us;
    He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

    He cannot and will not do anything outside of the principles of justice. It's impossible that he would actively do the following :

    "deceives, tempts, gives people evil spirits, creates evil, hardens hearts, moves men to do evil"

    So the permissive sense as an implicit holds in very many cases.
