Biblical Doctrine A Struggle For Some


There are many, many people that struggle with the doctrine of election. If you are one of them, I encourage you to read one of the best books that I have read on the subject Sinners in the Hands of A Good God by David Clotfelter or read a great article from Master's Seminary on the subject. This is a doctrine that once grasped will set a person free in their faith in Jesus Christ. Why? Because it is biblical and personal. It is surprising to me just how many churches are basing their beliefs on man-made traditions and not according to the Bible.

Pastor or Laity ask yourself are my beliefs based on the Bible or traditions of men? I pray that they are based on the Bible. Praise God that He is building His church today.

Ryan the book that lead me to an understanding of this doctrine was chosen by God by R.C. Sproul.
