1. God causes people to sin.

Acts 4:27-28 – For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur.
(Also see Isaiah 63:17; Job 1:21-22; 1 Chronicles 21:1-8 combined with 2 Samuel 24:1; 1 Samuel 2:25; Exodus 4:21; Deuteronomy 2:30; Romans 9:17-24; Genesis 45:5-8; Judges 14:4; Luke 22:22; Revelation 17:17; Lamentations 2:6)

2. God judges as guilty those that He caused to sin.

Romans 9:19-20 – You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?” On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it?
(Also see Acts 2:36-38; 1 Chronicles 21:7-12; Romans 9:17-24; Mark 11:13-14; 1 Samuel 2:25, 3:13; Exodus 14:4)

3. God often compares humans to inanimate objects in His hands.

Isaiah 29:16 – You turn things around! Shall the potter be considered as equal with the clay, That what is made would say to its maker, “He did not make me”; Or what is formed say to him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?
(Also see Isaiah 10:12-15, 45:9, 64:8; Jeremiah 18:6; Romans 9:21; Matthew 7:19; Luke 13:9; Matthew 3:12; 1 Corinthians 5:6; 2 Timothy 2:20-21)

4. God Himself gives people hard and unrepentant hearts.

Exodus 7:3 – I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that I may multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.
(Also see Exodus 4:21, 9:12, 10:1, 10:20, 10:27, 11:10, 14:4; Deuteronomy 2:30; John 12:40)

5. God Himself gives people soft and repentant hearts.

Ezekiel 36:26 – Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
