Divine sovereignty

May 17, 2017

Divine sovereignty that overrules (men) as we read from Scripture does not cause people to do bad but on the contrary merely prevents/restrains them (and even that only) in infrequent occasions, and that usually in the defense of those oppressed (often in response to an outcry for deliverance). Much like we humans obstruct the evil intent of other humans. As for doing good, divine sovereignty is only an agent that assists and facilitates the good conduct of men and does not accomplish the good act itself. So there is all the room for human responsibility. Doctrine that negates this view of divine sovereignty is at best lame and at worst a license for irresponsibility, neither of which save.
