077: Does God Choose Us or Do We Choose God?

Subscribe to RTC:

In the Christian world, there is a long standing debate of who initiates one’s salvation – God or man. Since the days of John Calvin and Jacobus Arminius (and even back to the time of St. Augustine), the question of “Does God choose those who follow Him, or does man have the ability to choose to follow God on his or her own accord?” This view is a big difference between not only those in the Protestant Church, but this belief is also a big divide between the Catholic Church and Protestant denominations.
In this episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller look at the history of the Calvanist and Arminianist beliefs, what the Bible has to say about this conversation, and why your view on God’s salvation can dictate how you view God and the world.
