    Extreame Sovereignty= The Worst Doc
    Extreme
    trine in the Body of Christ!! Exposed.
    The belief that God controls everything that happens to us is one of the devil’s biggest inroads into our lives. If this belief is true, then our actions are irrelevant, and our efforts are meaningless. What will be will be.

    If we believe that God wills everything, good or bad, to happen to us, it gives us some temporary relief from confusion and condemnation, but in the long-term, it slanders God, hinders our trust in God, and leads to passiveness.
    it is assumed that since God is paramount or supreme that nothing can happen without His approval. That is not what the Scriptures teach. In 2 Peter 3:9, Peter said, “The Lord is…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” This clearly states that it is not the Lord’s will for anyone to perish, but people are perishing. Jesus said, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” (Matt. 7:13). Relatively few people are saved compared to the number that are lost. God’s will for people concerning salvation is not being accomplished.

    This is because the Lord gave us the freedom to choose. He doesn’t will anyone into hell. He paid for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2; 1 Tim. 4:10), but we must choose to put our faith in Christ and receive His salvation. People are the ones choosing hell by not choosing Jesus as their Savior. It is the free will of man that damns them, not God.

    People virtually have to climb over the roadblocks that God puts in their way to continue on their course to hell. The cross of Christ and the drawing power of the Holy Spirit are obstacles that every sinner encounters. No one will ever stand before God and be able to fault Him for withholding the opportunity to be saved. The Lord woos every person to Him, but we have to cooperate. Ultimately, the Lord simply enforces the consequences of people’s own choices.

    God has a perfect plan for every person’s life (Jer. 29:11), but He doesn’t make us walk that path. We are free moral agents with the ability to choose. He has told us what the right choices are (Deut. 30:19), but He doesn’t make those choices for us. God gave us the power to control our destinies.
    Man has been given the authority over his own life, but he must have the Lord’s direction to succeed. Jeremiah 10:23 says, “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” God created us to be dependent upon Him and our independence is at the root of all our problems. As if it wasn’t bad enough for man to try to run his affairs independently of God and His standards, it has been made even worse by religion teaching us that all our problems are actually blessings from God. That is a faith killer. It makes people totally passive.AW

    There is both Divine sovereignty and human responsibility in John 6.37: "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."

    God will not force anyone to accept His love, mercy, forgiveness, blessings, salvation. Those that would choose to reject the love of God are evil and the only place for such evil in eternity is the eternal lake of fire!
    Lucifer and man are God's creation and both choose to reject God and live in sin. Satan and the fallen angels are pure evil and beyond salvation. Jesus paid for man's sin and bought man a pardon but man must choose to believe and accept the pardon and if man makes the choice to live in sin and reject God's love and mercy he is pure evil too and the only place in eternity for all evil is the eternal lake of fire!!

    1. Christians need to understand that God's perfect will and His permissive will are not identical.

    2. Christians also need to understand that God's absolute sovreignty and man's free will are not incompatible.

    So the problem really is with those who try to introduce conflicts where there are none.
