The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. -Proverbs 16:4, KJV
We could get into a debate over predestination, how people become Christians, and God’s involvement with evil.
(These debates happen regularly, everyday.)
But something that should be agreed on is that God is in control. He created all things, and all things were created to bring glory to Himself.
Even the evil people and horrible events (natural and man-made) are under His purview and ultimate control.
He is not surprised by what is happening, and He can use it all to bring about His purposes.
There is no real debate: the Creator reigns over His creation.
