I would agree with Mike NY, and this is far better than the wcf statement. The Lord God Almighty permits the evil in the world rather than ordains it. He permitted Saul of Tarsus a season of persecution of his people, but then ordained that it should cease, when he brought Saul out of darkness on the road to Damascus and ordained him a minister of Christ to the Gentiles.
I realise the wording is not exactly fine-tuned, but that is what I have concluded from reading scripture.
Amen and good example, bro. A little off subject, but how did your day at market go?

From monergism.com
God's Sovereignty.
"This simply refers to the fact that all things are under His rule and control, and that nothing happens in this Universe without His direction or permission.
---
Close enough, though I wish the difference between sovereignty and omnipotence were better known. As you say, "direction or permission." By definition "permission" excludes unchangeably ordaining "whatsoever comes to pass" as written in the WCF. It is the allowing that may be said to be ordained, since God determined that man may choose to do evil, and suffer the consequences accordingly, but that in no way is his ordaining of those acts, and that is why man is responsible for them.

“The choice of whether and whom to marry is an intensely personal decision that alters the course of an individual’s life,” Judge Henry F. Floyd wrote in the majority’s 63-page opinion. “Denying same — sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance.” ...

Without redefinition of marriage, his opinion would be laughed out of the courtroom. So I take it his opinion would be the same if an individual makes an intensely personal decision to marry his dog. If not, why not?

Arminian "sovereignty" means God can go so far in salvation - but needs man to oblige Him prior to going the whole way.
Whereas Calvinism gives "ALL" the glory to God.
God's sovereignty still means God can do what he wants without answering to anyone. That's all it means. It doesn't mean a religionist can tell him what he must decide because he's sovereign. Why do you think it gives glory to God when it is you decides the limits of his sovereignty?

Just think how the crime rate would fall if we legalized everything! No one would be tempted to do bad things, because there would be no bad things to do. Everyone would be moral, because there would be nothing immoral to them. Except for Jim, for whom moralism is inadequate, so he would be the exception to the rule.

It would bring about a "national emergency" wouldn't it? But I'm guessing even liberals wouldn't be stupid enough to do it with a disease that has no cure.

Scripture makes it very clear that God is both in control of everything that happens, and is not responsible for sin. We as fallen human beings do not understand this, but neither do we the Trinnity. Does that mean it's any less true? Can you really understand how one God, can also be three seperate, individual persons in one? I'd like to see you explain that in a satasfactory way! Just because high and mighty man can't understand it, doesn't mean that it isn't true.
Hi PoT, What's to understand? God is not responsible for sin because he does not ordain that man should sin. Man is responsible because, as it has been written in

Mark 7:21-23
"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man."

These things were never ordained by God that they should happen, they come from within man. God being in control means everything that happens, he either ordains, or allows. Not as WCF3/1 says, ordains "whatsoever comes to pass." Scripture is clear. Establishing a sound definition of ordain helps.

J4, No one believes unless gifted with faith {see Ephesians 2:8-9}. You must be regenerated by God before you can believe...why? "Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged." 1 Cor. 2:14
Amen! You cannot just discount scripture just because your fallen mind can not wrap itself around the FACT that only God can bring about salvation, and you are not capable of "making a decision" for God. We are Gods captives, only He can draw us towards this wonderful relationship we otherwise would never want or desire. Only e can change your desires, you can't. Read Jeremiah 10:23! If we are not capable of controling our own footsteps, then certainly we are not capable of choosing to love and want to serve God! Man only knows hatred towards God, but God in His wonderful, magnificent love takes us when we have murdered Him 1,000 times over in our hearts, and breaths love and a new life into our hearts, and only then can we love Him.
So true P. O. T.!
A regenerated person, i.e. born again of the Spirit, a new creation, is saved. To what end does the regenerated then believe?

Mike asked this Question: Did God unchangeably ordain Adam to disobey the direct command given him to not eat of the tree?
My question is can\does ANYTHING happen outside the will of GOD?
who works all things according to the counsel of his will, (Ephesians 1:11)
Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases. (Psalm 115:3)
Whatever the LORD pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. (Psalm 135:6)
Acts 15:18 (KJV)
18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
Numbers 23:19
God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it.
Scripture plainly teaches that all of man is responsible and answerable for his actions to the Holy God.
---
Romans 11:6
But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace
Good verses. Does it please God to cause man to do do evil?

Does God knowing his works from the beginning of the world mean he causes man to do evil?

There is difference between ordain(cause to happen) and allow(let happen) WCF 3/1 errs by not differentiating.

Ah, Jamie, that's the point, I won't be worked up, until I see some other publication, such as the Christian Science Monitor make a comment about it. Who knows maybe FEC is trying tosave the public from another book such as the apparently boring book like that of Hillary Clinton's.
Though you speak in jest, it is upon you to explain why the FEC should have say about political book content. And why would the same news in another publication carry more weight? The question is, did the FEC attempt to do what the Chairman of the FEC said they did? That ought to be enough info, even for those leftists who see only good in the attempt, as long as it is not directed against the left.

God created millions of trees shrubs and plants in the garden.
But only ONE tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
What was the purpose of that ONE trees existence?
The purpose was worked out in the Covenant of Redemption by the Trinity when they met before the world began.
Question: If that particular tree was not there in the garden six thousand years ago, would Adam and Eve have committed that original sin?
Purpose of the tree: To show Adam the benefit and necessity of what it means to trust and obey, and warn him of the peril of disobedience. (Gen 2:16,17) How would Adam learn this without a test? Imo IF that particular tree was not in the garden, another means of test would have been provided, but the tree was provided, therefore the "if" is speculative anyway.

Question: Did God unchangeably ordain Adam to disobey the direct command given him to not eat of the tree?

Look closer wrote:
Now apply that principle to WCF 3
First Cause = God.
Second Cause = Man
Have to disagree. God created the tree. That is not a cause of disobedience, neither first nor second. The existence of the tree does in no way cause Adam to disobey the command to not eat of it, any more than a stop sign at an intersection causes someone to disobey it. Is God in contradiction with himself, that he unchangeably ordains Adam to disobey the direct command given him to not eat of the tree? Or does this fall into that good old reliable comforting mystery category?

God. Did he unchangeably ordain that Adam and Eve must eat of it? "Whatsoever comes to pass" requires this.

Thus must the Arminian change the image of God to suit his human ideology.
WCF 3/1. God from all eternity did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass;[a yet so as thereby neither is God the author of sin,[b nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.
---
If WCF accepted the obvious truth that "neither is God the author of sin," it would not have said he unchangeably ordains "whatsoever comes to pass."

"ordain": author, cause to happen, bring about.

"whatsoever comes to pass": everything and anything that happens. In case it isn't clear, evil is something that comes to pass.

The rest of 3/1 is man's denial of what was just said, but by using his imagination, he works in mystery which he himself manufactures when he cannot make sense of his theology, which apparently is more important than truth.
