God’s Real Sovereignty

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli   in Theology

 

Sovereignty thumping Calvinists have verses like Phil2:12 of demoted Paul to back up their claims. They say it is God who is the one CAUSING us to will. Rather what is really happening is that Calvinists try to escape out of the hook. It is they who ARE UNWILLING when it comes for their part to play. They wishfully think that since they are not moving right now it means that God has not actually CAUSED them to return or willed them to move at all. No freewill according to them.

God works in all to will, they say. Where then is our own ID? Where then is our distinct role of sonship? God rewards us according to our works–the scriptures are full of that. God in fact rejoices in the virtues of His sons. He is glorified in their glory just as it was the case when Jesus was glorified. So the “ALONE” (sola) needs to be struck down in entirety because here we are talking about the ultimate Glory, which is NOT for God “alone.” See this article or this video for the striking down of Sola Fide (through Faith Alone), Sola Christos (on the basis of Christ Alone) and Sola Grace (by Grace Alone).

If the Truth is in anyway exaggerated it losses its power and is thrown out altogether as a lie. 

If works are to be made distinct then they are also distinct from even God’s OWN works! But Paul’s erroneous teachings don’t allow that except in the case of plant-water-grow metaphor in 1Cor3:6. When Jesus says the sparrow falls down according to the will of God (Matt10:29), it does not mean God is a control-freak. It just means that it was God who has put in place the various causes/forces for the sparrow to fall to the ground. It is as simple as that. But Calvinists take that to mean God is a control-freak and justify a whole lot of other erroneous teachings of OSAS,  etc. and in order to suite their teachings, they even alter scripture such as Rev13:8NASB (BAD) & Rev13:8ESV (BAD) cf. Rev13:8NKJV (good).
