Questions Answered – Joseph’s Brothers and God’s Will

From a Facebook group:

I am wondering if you have a snappy response to the charge that God planned for Joseph’s brothers to treat him like dirt.
(Genesis 50:20) As for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.

A response:

Acts 7:9 And the patriarchs, jealous of Joseph, sold him into Egypt; but God was with him
Acts 7:10 and rescued him out of all his afflictions and gave him favor and wisdom before Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who made him ruler over Egypt and over all his household.

Only the Calvinists read this verse like Calvinists. Acts 7:9-10, God rescued Joseph from his brothers.
