What Does It Matter?

God's Sovereignty and Man's Salvation
God's Sovereignty and Man's SalvationSteve Gregg

In this lecture, Steve Gregg addresses the controversy between Calvinism and Arminianism and argues that a person does not necessarily become a better Christian by holding the opposing view. He suggests that while theology provides a foundation for living a good life, it should not be viewed as contradictory to true realities or used to justify controversial doctrines or behaviors. Gregg also challenges the notion that God only loves the elect and expresses the importance of empathy and compassion towards sinners.
