Cross-Examination: Foreordination

Each month the "Cross-Examination" column presents a summary statement of a Reformed and Reconstructionist conviction in theology or ethics, and then offers brief answers to common questions, objections or confusions which people have about that belief. Send issues or questions you would like addressed by Dr. Bahnsen to the editor.

God is the sovereign governor of every event in nature and human history. All things take place according to His plan and purpose. God's sovereign rule over everything that happens includes the affairs of men - indeed, even the free choices made by individuals. He has decreed in an unchangeable fashion from all eternity what events will take place and what decisions men will make.
