If the purpose of God is accomplished here, it will be no thanks to the uncooperative instrument of “human cooperation.”. Human Freedom and the Sovereignty of God. Scripture surely teaches both human freedom and the sovereignty of God. However, it does not technically define what kind of human freedom or sovereignty is in view. For this, one’s biblical understanding is developed through a process of learning about ourselves and about God via his written Word (Romans ), together with some philosophical.

      That’s the question today from Ryan in Jacksonville, Florida: “Pastor John, I thank God for using A.W.

This is clearly the case when it comes to understanding God's sovereignty and human responsibility in salvation. Unfortunately, there is more heat than light in many instances with shrill voices and unhealthy rhetoric — on both sides of the issue — getting too much attention.

The first step in understanding the compatibility between God’s sovereignty and human will is to recognize that they are not mutually exclusive, and Scripture makes this absolutely clear. In God’s design, human responsibility is clearly not eliminated by God’s sovereign control over His.

God’s will is sure to be fulfilled whether we evangelize or not. God does all that he pleases, and nothing can derail his ultimate purposes, including the human will. God's Sovereignty and the Human Will. "It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure" (Phil 13).
