Westminster Confession, Chapter 3, Paragraph 1, Of God’s Eternal Decree
1-God, from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass: yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin, nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures; nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.
It is quite hard to grasp at times that God is absolutely sovereign over everything. He ordains whatsoever comes to pass. Yet our liberty is real, and so are our choices. How this works together completely is beyond my thinking abilities. I just know that the Bible teaches both truth’s side by side. And because the Bible teaches both facts as true, there can be no denying it. This is one of the reasons I have a problem teaching logic apart from the Scriptures. The Bible needs to be our truth standard whereby we build all categories of true and false from. God is amazing, and what a privilege it is that he would desire worship from us.
Blessings to you this Lord’s Day!
