The Real Issue with Predestination (Calvinism vs Arminianism)
Today’s healthy tip:
Listen to this message:
One day a while ago I found out that one of my friends’ daughters had tried to commit suicide. Thankfully she failed. That same day, after learning the news, I went to consult my devotional when it was prayer time. You would not believe the topic: Jesus raising the little girl back from death (Mark 5, and other gospels). I shared the page of the devotional with my friend, and I believe God was glorified in that moment of fellowship and mutual marveling at His usual poetic timing. My friend’s daughter thankfully recovered and has gotten closer to Jesus since.
“What are the odds?” I’d say to myself many, many times after that event as I thought about it. Indeed it brought to mind many such events in my own life. Impeccably timed and executed happenings that, altogether, defy the modern day notion that there is randomness and that we are the sovereign determiners of our reality just flowing through a chaotic unfolding of events through our free choices. I am sure you have had these kinds of experiences too, and the point is that God has seamlessly choreographed all of these intertwining paths in a perfect way through His perfect genius, leaving no room for error or for things to be too early or too late.
