He is Never Absent or Inactive

All of history is composed of this sort of dual explanation: God foreordains what humans choose.  He is never absent or inactive when human beings hurt each other or themselves.  In the person of His Son, He is always in our midst, as the One who holds each and every aspect of creation, including all of its evil aspects, in His hands so that He may carry it to where it accomplishes exactly what He wants.
