FEATURED Pamphlet!
REPROBATION AND GOD'S GOOD PLEASURE
By Prof Herman Hanko

Question: "If God is always saddened by sin and His just wrath always expressed against it, can we still say that His eternal condemnation of reprobate sinners is part of His good pleasure?"

Is it possible for God to damn the reprobate according to His good pleasure and yet be saddened by their unbelief?

"..defenders of the well-meant gospel offer teach God’s love for all men and His desire to save them, because Christ wept over the sin of the nation of Israel. The weeping of Jesus is, therefore, the disappointment the Lord experiences that the nation rejected and spurned His love and turned away in disgust from His gracious expressions of His desire to save them. The sorrow is evidence of the frustrations of His desire: He wanted to save them, but failed." Can Christ fail? NO!

"One may claim that this is hard to understand. I agree. At that point where God’s will touches the will of man in such a way that God’s will is accomplished and man remains accountable before God, we confront a great and wonderful work of God that is beyond our understanding."

God is sovereign—not only in electing some to everlasting blessedness in Christ, but also rejecting others according to His own sovereign determination.

Read this pamphlet to learn more of God's sovereign work of reprobation.
