THE FRIENDS OF FREE WILL
ARE ENEMIES OF FREE GRACE

THE CONTROVERSY in the fallen and corrupt mind of mankind from the inception of sin, when planted there by the serpent some six thousand years ago, has never diminished. Namely who is sovereign, God or man? Who is in control of matters, the creature or the Creator? The lie is stated in verse five of Genesis three, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” The idea from the text is, ‘and you shall become gods,’ (Elohim is the same Hebrew word translated “God” in the beginning of the verse) ‘determining for yourselves what is good and evil.’ The first man Adam bought the lie, exercised his “free will” and we as mankind have been in a mess ever since. The following is by the late English pastor, Charles Haddon Spurgeon for you to consider.
“According to the free will scheme, the Lord intends good, but He must wait like a servant on His own creature to know what his intention is; God wills good and would do it but He cannot because He has an unwilling man who will not have God’s good thing carried into effect.
“What do ye, sirs, but drag the Eternal from His throne and lift up into it that fallen creature, man; for man, according to that theory, nods and his nod is destiny. You must have a destiny somewhere; it must either be as God wills or as man wills. If it be as God will, then Jehovah sits as sovereign upon His throne of glory, and all hosts obey Him, and the world is safe. If not God, then you put man there to say, ‘I will,’ or ‘I will not.’ If I will it, I will enter heaven, if I will it, I will despise the grace of God; if I will it, I will conquer the Holy Spirit, for I am stronger than God and stronger than omnipotence. If I will it, I will make the blood of Christ of no effect, for I am mightier than the blood, mightier than the blood of the Son of God Himself. Though God make His purpose, yet will I laugh at His purpose; it shall be my purpose that shall make His purpose, stand or fall.’ If this be not atheism, it is idolatry, it is putting man where God should be.”
A gospel that attributes salvation to the free will of man glorifies man and not God. A gospel that does not attribute salvation to the free grace of God is not salvation, but a fatal deception. A gospel that does not glorify God in its entirety is not a gospel that God will recognize. In biblical reality, in the words of the Apostle Paul, is another gospel and not the gospel at all.
