I believe this is the worst doctrine in the church today. I know that this is a shocking statement and is near blasphemy to some people, but the way sovereignty is taught today is a real faith killer. 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.

The Sovereignty of God
I haven't blogged in a while, mostly because I've been doing some research. I'm working on an article about Job right now, it might take a few days to put it all together. In the meantime, part of the 'Job question' has to do with God's sovereignty, and I found a very helpful article on that topic that I wanted to share. Here's 2 of the first 3 paragraphs of the article, see the rest of it here.
