The real Turretin on: Omniscience

December 15, 2008

Jason Barnhart (link) has an interesting post in which he argues that three aspects of the Reformed view of God’s omniscience are actually a pagan inheretance. I don’t endorse his post, and if I had more time, I’d consider addressing his thesis.


Times of Unpredictability

October 15, 2008

It’s time for people to remember something:

Isaiah 41:20-24
20That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. 21Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong [reasons], saith the King of Jacob. 22Let them bring [them] forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they [be], that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come. 23Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye [are] gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold [it] together. 24Behold, ye [are] of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination [is he that] chooseth you.

God is in control of the world economy. Not Wall St., not Main St., not Pennsylvania Ave., not Downing St., and not the Kremlin. They are all unable to predict, much less control, the future. There is a God who controls all things to the good of the elect:

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Praise be to our God!
