Selected Reading

I read (or watched or heard) these recently and recommend them to you.


The Reformed View of Predestination and Is God Equally Active In Causing the Salvation of the Elect and the Damnation of the Reprobate?
I would have linked these two in last week’s theological term post on reprobation if they had existed then. I’ll probably add them to that post soon.

The Aseity of God
This month’s issue of Credo Magazine is all about the aseity of God: “Does God depend on you? Is he a needy God, one that relies on his creation not only for his existence but for his happiness and fulfillment? The instinct of many Christians is to answer yes to questions like these. In an effort to make God more relational, the Creator is turned into the creature. God becomes just as dependent on us as we are on him. But the scriptures paint a different picture of God. Self-existence and self-sufficient, he is a God of aseity. He looks to no one for life, for he is life in and of himself. As it turns out, God does not depend on us, but we depend on him, from the air we breathe to the everlasting life we need.”
