I don't believe bad things come from God. I believe bad things come from the evil one.

When God allows the evil one's ways to happen, we can be assured that this does not mean the evil one is winning. Have hope. We are on the side that wins.

"You pushed me violently that I might fail, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation." (Psalm 118)
