Predestination vs. Human Responsibilty


Samuel at Gilgal

Charles H. SpurgeonCharles Spurgeon:

That God predestines, and yet that man is responsible, are two facts that few can see clearly. They are believed to be inconsistent and contradictory to each other. If, then, I find taught in one part of the Bible that everything is fore-ordained, that is true; and if I find, in another Scripture, that man is responsible for all his actions, that is true; and it is only my folly that leads me to imagine that these two truths can ever contradict each other. (A Defense of Calvinism)

  1. This is one of the great paradoxes in theology and I too have never been able to come to a conclusion one way or the other. In either case there seems no guarantee of assurance which some have presented can be ascertained. So this is another area to keep it simple, live a Christian life and the chips will fall as they may for we can do no more.
