They Know Not What It Is To Be God

“The Scripture clearly asserts the Sovereignty of God, as having mercy on whom he will have mercy, and hardening whom he will; and repels the strongest objection that ever was made against it, Why doth he yet find fault? for who hath resisted his will? … many who profess to reverence the Scriptures as a divine revelation, reject this doctrine with scorn, though it be revealed there as clear as words can make it; and that not in one or two passages, but interwoven with the whole style of the Scriptures, and supported by a variety of facts recorded there. They reject it, why? Because they know not what it is to be God, and to have understanding and power like him” (Sandeman).

“Because they know not what it is to be God.” Most who name the name of Christ know not what it is to be God. They do not know who they are dealing with.

I can think of no better article than this that shows this pervasive scorning of Divine sovereignty, particularly among the popular preachers of Calvinist consumption:

“Unconditional Reprobation and Active Hardening: A Study on Romans 9:11-22”
