    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

THE REFORMED VIEW

Loraine BoettnerLoraine Boettner:

[In the reformed view,] God is seen as the great and mighty King who has appointed the course of nature and who directs the course of history even down to its minutest details.  His decree is eternal, unchangeable, holy, wise, and sovereign.  It extends not merely to the course of the physical world but to every event in human history from the creation to the judgment, and includes all the activities of saints and angels in heaven and of reprobates and demons in hell.  It embraces the whole scope of creaturely existence, through time and eternity, comprehending at once all things that ever were or will be in their causes, conditions, successions, and relations.  Everything outside of God Himself is included in this all-embracing decree, and that very naturally since all other beings owe their existence and continuance in existence to His creative and sustaining power.  It provides a providential control under which all things are hastening to the end of God’s determining; and the goal is, “One far-off divine event toward which the whole creation moves.”

  1. A high view of God is essential to sound theology. Anything less is making Him into your own image.
