Message 2, All Christians Believe This Doctrine:
This Message is from the Conference Chosen by God: 2005 St. Louis Conference.
About the Conference, Chosen by God: 2005 St. Louis Conference
In Ephesians 1:11, the apostle Paul tells us that God works all things according to the counsel of His will and has predestined His people to receive an inheritance in Christ. However, though all Christians affirm God’s sovereignty and His work of predestination, different traditions disagree on the exact nature of God’s control over all things.
In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2005 fall conference series in St. Louis, Missouri, Drs. R.C. Sproul and Derek Thomas explore the doctrine of predestination. Drawing from the teaching of sacred Scripture, they affirm and defend the Reformed doctrine of election, emphasizing God’s complete control over His creation, and they explain how His sovereignty relates to our freedom and His justice.
