"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Divine Election Explained

    This is what happens when a gentleman with a sincere question about election approaches Paul Washer (unannounced) and someone else has a video camera standing by ready to record.

    In spite of the sound quality issues (thankfully the entire conversation is readable in subtitles on the screen), I am sure the explanation given here can be helpful for many people. - JS

    He's the Nick Saban of preachers as far as I'm concerned. Of course I mean in a sanctified way. I always enjoy watching a minister of the Word rightly respond to an earnest inquirer. Our pastor has a quarterly question session and he always has a lot of stuff on election/predestination. It's always an encouragement to hear the scriptural, reasoned answers. Thanks!
