Mega church pastor Steven Furtick recently tweeted this:
Any interpretation of God’s sovereignty that diminishes the value of human initiative – is distorted & DANGEROUS.
I forwarded that to a truck driver in our church, and he responded with this:
I have this written down in my truck. I would say it applies. “Let those roar at us who will. We will ever brighten forth, with all our power of language, the doctrine which we hold concerning the free election of God, seeing that it is only by it that the faithful can understand how great the goodness of God is which effectually called them to salvation.” John Calvin
I’d rather have the latter in our little church than the thousands of the former.
