The Sovereignty of God in Scripture (Part 1)
In this discussion, Steve Gregg tackles the concept of God's sovereignty and its role in Scripture, particularly its relation to Calvinism. He explains the classical view of Augustinian Calvinism, which suggests that everything that happens is foreordained by God, while also acknowledging the mystery of God's ways. Gregg argues against the idea that God is a micromanager, noting that God allows free will while still guiding the direction of events. He also highlights the tension between God's desire for all to be saved and his active intervention in the lives of the elect, which some interpretations of Calvinism teach.
