Message 8, Does the Doctrine of the Divine Decrees Eliminate Human Will?:
Reformed theology teaches that God has ordained whatsoever comes to pass. Critics of Reformed theology argue that this entails a fatalistic worldview in which only God’s will truly exists. They claim that if God decreed or willed the acts of our will, then our will is not real. In this lecture, Dr. John MacArthur explains why the biblical doctrine of the divine decrees does not eliminate the reality of the human will and does not entail a fatalistic worldview.
