Lets take the following example:
A guy standing on a sidewalk wants to cross the road. He hears nothing coming and so he walks out but is immediately knocked down and killed by a lorry.
Now, here’s what happened…
All our senses are a gift from God. Every sound that hits our ear, and then consequently computed by our brain to give us the sensation of sound, is a gift from God. Deaf people will tell you this in an instant. So, if God stops giving the gift of sound to the man about to cross the road (as God is under no obligation to give us any gift and can take it away at any time), when the man is killed by the lorry, has God simply permitted an evil act to take place or has God actively ordained/caused this evil act by removing the gift of hearing from the man as he was about to cross the road?
Did God permit or cause this to happen?
