All God's Methods are Most Reasonable even when God Permits us to Sin

"Don't be objecting and finding fault about man's fall, and arguing in your own mind against the justice of God in so ordering and permitting of it. And don't murmur and quarrel with God about your own particular sins, because God did not restrain you. Consider how you have willfully, and of your own free choice and without any manner of compulsion, done those things that you know God had forbidden, and that he warned and exhorted and counseled you against, and humble and abase yourself, cast yourself down as in the dust, and own that nothing but the wrath and vengeance of that holy Being you have offended is your due." , "All God's Methods Are Most Reasonable"
