Many people believe that "God is in control" of things on earth today, and that everything that happens is His will. However, that is not what the Bible actually says and furthermore, it makes God out to be very unloving and unfair. In this teaching John Schoenheit explains what he means when he says that God is not in control as he shows from Scripture that what God wants often does not happen. The Devil has a lot of control, and people can defy and disobey God's will. Although the doctrine that God is in control is comforting to many people and therefore popular, we believe the truth declared in this teaching will help set people free from the harmful effects of this popular Christian misunderstanding.
