Human Freedom & Divine Sovereignty | R. C. Sproul

The question of how God's absolute sovereignty relates to human freedom is a long-standing one. In his book Enjoying God, Sproul briefly tackles this subject and makes an important distinction: we are free, but we are not autonomous. Augustine said that "in a certain sense God wills everything that comes to pass." He ordains things …
