CALVINIST T.V. My daughter is conducting her weekly Bible study in the den. I am stuck in the bedroom, watching television and reading John Gill on the internet at the same time. At the end of “Law And Order”, a mother testified against her own son. She asked the judge to put him in jail and not let him out. She said “he was born bad and he’ll die bad.” Later a policeman gave him a chance to prove he was not “beyond redemption”. He was the token Arminian, I guess.
The kid refused.
God said to Moses that he will have mercy on whom he will have mercy. See Exodus 33:19. Paul repeated the passage in Romans 9:14 and adds in verse 18 that he hardens whom he wants to harden. And now we know it even works on t.v.
