This has been one of the toughest question christian at large cant find answers to. Jehovah witness said they are not while other said they are. My answer is they not but some are created by us. Y? Because from the time of creation God has a good plan for us, that is why he created the garden of eden. From the time of human existance God gave us freedom of choice to make our own decisions. He gave us the free will to chose. What ever we chose we are to bear the consequences. That is the reason why he created the two tress; good and the forbidden tree. It was left for adam and eve to make the decision. Now, will wnt say it is the will of God that they ate the fruit? Off course not. Or should i ask; if you carry a gun and kill and innocent baby is it of the will of God? When the bible made it clear that though shall not kill. What mistake we make God in its infinit mercy try to change the situation around in other to favour us just because he doesn't want us to suffer and that does not mean it is his will.
