Say what? Surely God is in control of everything isn’t He?
Contrary to popular belief God is not in control of the earth. The bible makes it clear that God made the heavens and the earth but gave the earth to the first man, Adam to dominate, rule and subdue. Adam lost control and handed the earth to the devil. Since then, God has not taken back control of the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen 1:27-28)
The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. (Psalm 115:16)
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. (Luke 4:5-6)
