Review Your Salvation
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 21, 2022
The dilemmas of free-will soteriology are plainly if inadvertently exposed in this text. First, God cajoles, pressures, even sends an angel to persuade Nathan to accept him. Then, at the very last, it is left to Nathan to make the choice -- which he is only able to because of the intercessory prayers of Tammy, his wife.
The real dilemma is this: did God know what what decision Nathan was going to make? If no, then God is not omniscient. And if yes, then what God knew was going to happen had to happen in order for God not to be wrong. In the words of Martin Luther, the foreknowledge of God and the fore-ordained will of God are one and the same. And in the words of Jesus himself (John 6:65) no one can come to the Son except that the Father wills it. No one chooses Christ except through the Grace and foreordination of God (see Romans 8:28 and Ephesians 1). May the Grace and Mercy of the Lord be with you, and bring you into His unsearchable love.
