How To Reconcile God’s Sovereignty and Man’s Ability to Choose

Saturday, May 23, 2015


Guest: Randy Alcorn, author, hand in Hand—The Beauty of God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice

hand in handFor from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.  Romans 11:36

The sovereignty of God could be defined as God’s rule or control over everything in the universe.  In other words, God knows all and causes or allows everything that happens.

Wrapping our finite minds around that is hard enough, but now add that God has created us with the ability to make meaningful choices in a world over which He is sovereign.

So how does God’s sovereignty and our decision-making practically play out, especially in terms of salvation, current events, and the myriad of choices we make every day?

Randy Alcorn, the founder and director of Eternal Perspectives Ministries, will join us this weekend to discuss this topic in light of his book, hand in Hand—The Beauty of God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice.

Note: A heartfelt thank you to our military veterans and their families for their sacrifices on behalf of our country.  May our peoples and leaders turn to God in repentance and faith.

Answers to Pressing Questions (May 18-24, 2015)

Monday, May 18, 2015


Are there really answers to life’s biggest questions?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Jesus said to His Father in John 17, “Your Word is truth”.  Far from fairy-tales, God’s Word provides accurate, historical, and the most reasonable answers to questions such as “How did the world begin?”, “Does God exist?”, and “What is right and what is wrong?”

This doesn’t mean that Christians know the full answer to every question, but God has provided enough explanation to understand the world around us and how to follow Him.

Hear an interview with Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, in which he answers some of the most pressing questions of our day, at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, Randy Alcorn joins us for the first of a two-part series about how God’s sovereignty interacts with human choice.
