To assume that His plan fails and that he strives to no effect is to reduce Him to the level of His creatures and make Him no God at all.More Loraine Boettner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Salvation is accomplished by the almighty power of the Triune God.

And this doctrine, when properly understood, is a most comforting and reassuring one. Who would not prefer to have his affairs in the hands of a God of infinite power, wisdom, holiness and love, rather than to have them left to fate, or chance, or irrevocable natural law, or to short-sighted and perverted self? Those who reject God's sovereignty should consider whatMore Loraine Boettner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
