Loraine Boettner on the Sovereignty of God

Posted by BluegrassRunner | Labels: , | Posted On Friday, February 23, 2018 at 5:30 AM

"Although the sovereignty of God is universal and absolute, it is not the sovereignty of blind power. It is coupled with infinite wisdom, holiness and love. And this doctrine, when properly understood, is a most comforting and reassuring one. Who would not prefer to have his affairs in the hands of a God of infinite power, wisdom, holiness and love, rather than to have them left to fate, or chance, or irrevocable natural law, or to short-sighted and perverted self? Those who reject God's sovereignty should consider what alternatives they have left."

Octavius Winslow on Holiness

Posted by BluegrassRunner | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 5:30 AM
