    Is everything that happens caused by God? Does God cause people to do evil? Is everything that happens a part of God's plan?

    "Is everything that happens caused by God?" YES! To say otherwise would be confessing Atheism or Deism.

    "Does God cause people to do evil?" YES and NO! No in the sense that God sows evil in man's heart. Yes in the sense that He is the first and primary cause of all things and decrees all things. However, this does not mean that God sins or does evil because God is not a responsible being as man is; and God does all things for his glory while sinful man does things for his sinful end.

    Is everything that happens a part of God's plan? YES!

    Of course I am assuming you are familiar with all the Scriptures that deal with God's decrees? If not, I will provide the plethora of Scriptures that support my answers.
