For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. - Psalms 5:4
My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure... - Isaiah 46:1
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. - Philippians 2:13
Observe, God has no pleasure in wickedness, period. This includes your own personal sinfulness and the sinful actions of others.
Concerning the actions of God, He will do all His Will according to His good pleasure, but at no time is He pleased with wickedness. This means that God is never the cause of sin, ever.
In consideration of our daily activities and behavior, since God works in us to do His good pleasure, this CANNOT include sin because God has no pleasure with sin. The sinful actions we do are from the nature of the flesh, a product of the sin of Adam.
Again, God has no pleasure in wickedness, period.
