IMO , to believe that sin is anything other than Gods creation and For his purpose is arminian thinking !

It is a far different thing to hold that "sin is . . . God's creation" than it is to hold that God decreed that sin should happen and providentially bring it to pass. God is NOT the "Author of sin"..... created beings, both angelic and human are the authors of sin and responsible for it. All the historic Reformed Confessions and Catechisms are very clear on this matter in stating that "God is not the author of sin", albeit He decreed that sin should come into the realm of the angelic host and all mankind.

In His grace,
