In this excellent, Bible-based article, John Hendryx answers a good question from a visitor struggling with this commonly misunderstood topic (click on title to read).  Interestingly, most Christians today believe that God helps them to save themselves. Moreover, they wrongly conclude that fallen man is the captain of his eternal destiny. This man-centered idea puts God at the mercy of sinners instead of the other way around. Indeed, it is most important to give our awesome, sovereign God all the credit, honor, glory, and praise for the gift of our salvation. "For my salvation comes from the Lord alone" (Jonah 2:9 NLT). It's all about Him!  Soli Deo Gloria!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION ON THIS TOPIC: "The Potter's Freedom" (338-page paperback) by James R. White.  This book effectively serves as a rebuttal to Norman Geisler's book against Calvinism entitled "Chosen But Free." Although Dr. Geisler labels himself as a "moderate" Calvinist, anyone less than a five-point Calvinist is actually an Arminian in denial. I heartily recommend James White's must-read book for your personal library by adding it to your shopping cart while at the www.monergism.com online bookstore or calling (503) 620-2138 to place your order (M-F 9 to 5 Pacific Time). Happy reading!
