Comments on Predestination - 2006

Predestination vs Free Will:

Please note - Near the end of this Blog section was hit by a spam bot advertising medications on it, sorry for the inconvenience. I am removing these but process is slow due to so many unauthorized postings.

The Calvinist – Armenian debate has created confusion. One side basically states that God selects people to be sent to Hell based on some sort of Sovereign arbitrary selection process. The other side says, no, God foreknows who are his and who are not – that people send themselves there. I know that this is an over simplification of both sides of this long standing debate but that is the basic premise for both. OSAS vs Arbitrary selection, what is the answer, if any to this debate?

Since my book dealt with this subject in part, I will begin to post brief writings on this topic that may help both sides see the beauty of God’s Sovereignty in a whole new light. It is my prayer that within these writings – the debate will cease being a debate and people find common ground.
