The Sovereignty of God—Has God Lost Control?

The condition of our world is such today that many are questioning whether the classical doctrine of the Absolute Sovereignty of Almighty God can still have any meaning. Human society is in a state of seething unrest. Quite apart from such “natural” calamities as famine and flooding, earthquakes and tornadoes, there is an appalling carnage and destruction of modern warfare, bringing death and devastation to civilian and soldier alike. There is no corner of the globe that is not a potential battlefield, ripe for an annihilating holocaust. Scientific achievements which hold out immense benefits to mankind are perverted into machines of slaughter and instruments of lying propaganda.
