God’s absolute sovereignty: The belief that God orders everything, controls everything, and rules over everything.
Riddle me this: If you believe this doctrine and are sick, then apparently God caused you to be sick. Does this mean you are a hypocrite if you seek healing or take medicine?
STOP! Don’t you dare get angry with me! According to your doctrine, it was God’s will that I ask this question. After all, He controls everything, doesn’t He? I am just being His vessel.
Sound ridiculous don’t it? Do you seriously believe God is the author of all our stupid decisions? “Ahhh, brothers and sisters. We don’t know why God took Jim home at such a young age. Never mind that Joe was using him as a saw horse. To God be the glory.”
As we say in the South…”I’m just being messy.” Be blessed.
