How Can I Reconcile God's Sovereignty and Human Responsibility?
In our adult Sunday School class on Sunday, January 3rd, we viewed a portion of a message by John MacArthur entitled, Does the Doctrine of Divine Decrees Eliminate Human Will? When studying the Doctrines of Grace (sometimes known as "Calvinism"), one of the concerns which often arises is the tension between God's sovereignty and human responsibility. "If God is sovereign, how can God still hold individuals responsible?" In a very candid, yet helpful message at the 2010 Ligonier National Conference, John MacArthur seeks to provide an answer to this question from the Bible.
