The Sovereignty of God
By A.W. Pink
Two things are beyond dispute: (1) God is sovereign, and (2) man is a responsible creature. Yet how has the church handled these two truths? Has there been a proper emphasis on God’s rule in and over His creation? Stated another way, has there been an over emphasizing of the human side and an insufficient emphasis on the Divine side, or, an over emphasizing of the Divine side and an insufficient emphasis on the human side? Surely, if we err at all it is on the right side. Surely, there is far more danger of making too much of man and too little of God, than there is of making too much of God and too little of man. Indeed, the question might well be asked, Can we press God ’s claims too far? Can we be too extreme in insisting upon the absoluteness and universality of the Sovereignty of God?
