2 Peter 3:9 - Two Approaches
Question: The Bible seems to teach Divine election very clearly, and yet 2 Peter 3:9 says that God is not willing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. How do you explain this verse?
I have found two main ways this verse is dealt with by reformed people. There's the way Dr. R. C. Sproul and Dr. James White (and myself) would approach it and there is the way others such as Dr. John Piper do. I have just posted a short article about it here.
