One thing I have tried to understand ever since becoming reformed is the topic of evil and sin.
Maybe someone could explain it in reformed beliefs for me.
We humans choose sin by nature; is there a choice rather or not to sin? Or is Satan the one controlling our actions. I do not belive Satan controls our actions, I believe we choose to sin or not. According to Luke 4 and of course Gen. 3.
So what is the author of sin? To my understanding it is us, the humans.

Now Satan is the author of evil? Evil can tempt, but the action which is sin is done by us.

I keep thinking on how I would answer the question; well if God decrees all things, then is God the author of evil? I of course say no, but can not explain clearly on why I said no.

So I brought this topic here. Thanks.
