I've recently left my SBC church and began regularly attending an OPC church. I believe I've been led by The Spirit to do this and have benefited greatly since making the move a few weeks ago. My new pastor was in a serious automobile accident some three months ago and still suffers from injuries sustained. We were having a conversation on this and he said that though he did not understand God's purpose in allowing this, he is convinced that it was the will of God that he should suffer it. I proposed that perhaps it was the devil who was responsible. So in this past Sunday's sermon he brought up our conversation, without mentioning that I had been the one who suggested it, and said that he was greatly disturbed for a few hours thinking it over. He said that he has come to the conclusion that God is sovereign and the devil had nothing to do with it. I am aware that Satan is a created being, is not all powerful, or omnipresent. I'm very familiar with the Book of Job and God allowing Satan to test Job. I know 'the devil walks the earth as a roaring lion, seeking who he may devour.' I've done searches on previous threads on TPB that addressed this topic. I haven't come up with a satisfactory answer as to whether I was completely mistaken, possibly correct, or perhaps 'could have been, but not necessarily' ? Any help with this is appreciated.
