Quotethis statement is without restriction, and in my understanding delegates control over the earth to people in flesh bodies.
QuoteHe does seek to influence people in flesh bodies to make the right decisions, but limits His methods of influence to His situational leading as confirmed by His revealed written word, the bible;
Quote(19) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
QuotePsa 78:40-41 KJV(40) How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!(41) Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
Quoteso God seeks to influence people through His 'situational' leading; indeed the devil also seeks to influence people through his 'situational' leading - but we are in control of the earth through our choice of who we are influenced by. God gave people in flesh bodies unrestricted dominion over the earth; people use that authority for both good and evil - bad things that happen are not evidence of God using sugffering to teach us, but rather the result of people using their authority in the earth for evil by following the devil's situational leading rather than following God's situational leading in a given situation. we can recognize God's leading by our knowledge of His revealed written word to support a given decision we make; we can recognize the devil's situational leading through the absence of God's revealed written word to support a given decision we make (such as basing a decision on 'common sense' or on the opinions of church leaders, or experience, etc.).
