God’s Sovereignty & Man’s Responsibility

Filed under: Some Famous | Some Not So Famous — pilgrimskeyboard @ 5:29 pm


James P. Boyce


The Scriptures recognize both the sovereignty of God, and the free agency, and accountability of man. Consciousness assures us of the latter. The nature of God … proves the former. The Bible makes no attempt to reconcile the two.  Paul even declines to discuss the subject, saying, “Nay but, oh man, who art thou that repliest against God?” Rom. 9:20. The two facts are plainly revealed. They cannot be contradictory, they must be reconcilable.   [Abstract of Systematic Theology, 118]
