“We believe certain doctrines not because they’re always explicable but because they’re biblical. They may provoke questions or stir controversy, but hopefully such doctrines— particularly the sovereignty of God— will be an anchor for our souls and a reason for relentless trust in our all-wise God who does all things well.”
. . . Mark Talbot, “All the Good That Is Ours in Christ,” 69-70: “We cannot understand how some human act can be fully explained in terms of God’s having freely intended it without that explanation cancelling the freedom and responsibility of its human intenders. We cannot understand how divine and human agency are compatible in a way that allows the exercise of each kind of agency to be fully explanatory of some object or event…. Scripture reveals that both human agency and divine agency are to be fully affirmed without attempting to tell us how this can be, because we have no way to understand it, no matter what Scripture would say.”
