If God is the ultimate cause of all that comes to pass, including evil and sinful things, can he be rightly charged with unrighteousness? This article considers the discussion on how to reconcile the problem of evil with a good God. It explains with some biblical illustrations that though God is the ultimate cause of all things, he is never the efficient cause of evil, and thus is not blameworthy for it.

These are the questions that this article attempts to settle by analyzing the teaching on the providence of God.
