"...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)

    Just finished the essay about Divine Omnicausality. Excellent, plain and compelling! And don't come back and say that's just your free will commenting! :)

    Can you republish the third essay? When I open the link the type is set off to far to the left making sentences and word incomprehensible?

    Thanks for identifying that problem, Michael. I've reworked that page, and it should be fine now. Thanks, again, and thanks for the encouraging words above. Because our great and majestic God has made his sovereignty so plain to see in creation and especially Scripture, the omnicausality essay was an edifying pleasure to write. Thanks for reading! Blessings, brother.

    Sorry about the duplicate. It claimed that the server didn't follow through, but after did :)

    Well if you get to writing books I hope you lose this plain clear style of writing?

    Thanks for making the adjustment. I've now read all the essays!

    "Do not lose" I meant to say!

    Thanks, Michael. Actually, I getting ready to offer a couple of books on the blog. When you see them posted, drop me a note and I'll send you some copies, so you can check them against the clarity criterion. How'd that be? :)


    Thanks, although I would rather support john's ministry Monergism and buy them???

    I'd love the opportunity for John to carry them. Once I get the ISBNs for them, I'll get with John about that possibility. I appreciate your commitment to Monergism's ministry!
