Sovereign Election, Part 1
6/2/2015
The doctrine of sovereign election, when viewed in an improper perspective, may seem cold and unfeeling, depicting God as callous and arbitrary in His election of some and not others. Yet, this viewpoint fails in two significant ways. First, it assumes man deserves God's favor. Second, it does not recognize the extreme love demonstrated by God toward His Son and His elect. Election finds its root in God's love, and as Dr. Lawson explains in this lesson, far from being a dictatorial, meaningless activity by an unfeeling God, sovereign election expresses the fullness of God's love for a sinful, unrepentant people unable to make the choice to love God for themselves.

Articles from Dr. R.C. Sproul

Divine Incomprehensibility

What can we know about God? That’s the most basic question of theology, for what we can know about God and whether we can know anything about Him at all determines the scope and content of our study. Here we must consider the teaching of the greatest theologians in history, all of whom have affirmed the “incomprehensibility of God.” By using the term incomprehensible, they are not referring to something we are unable to comprehend or know at all. Theologically speaking, to say God is incomprehensible is not to say that God is utterly unknowable. It is to say that none of us can comprehend God exhaustively.
