The Doctrines of Grace: Irresistible Grace
Many Christians wouldn't want something against their will. Does this include salvation? Many people want the freedom to choose their dinner, the car they drive, the color clothing they choose. What if God conquered the hostility that was in man's heart and draw him into salvation? By draw do we mean: a "woo-ing", an enticement, a bait, or a pulling? In this episode of Bringing the Word Pastor Paul Starks dissects the biblical image of how God saves a person. If man is evil Jeremiah 17:9 would it be wrong for God to bring him into salvation even if it were against his will... is this what God does? Prepare to dig in with bible in hand into this great feast of theology (Theology = the study of God).
Afterall, 9 But I with the voice of thanksgivingwhat I have vowed I will pay.
