Tell me, TWB... Don't you believe 1 John 5:19 or Luke 4:5-6? Why do you suppose they're in the bible?
19) The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
20) For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope
21) that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
22) We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
When Adam sinned, he turned control of this world over to God's arch enemy, Satan, who still holds it as 1 John 5:19 plainly states.
One day (soon?) Jesus Christ will return to earth and take back that control. The entire creation has been waiting for that day. Until that happens, God is at war with Satan, and we are in the battlefield.
Currently, God is NOT in control of everything that happens on this planet. Actually, He is behind very little of it. We are to pray for God's will to be done, it's not automatic.
