Brad Littlejohn and I recently recorded a series of videos in which we discuss issues of wisdom that surround our response to the coronavirus crisis as Christians. In this second video, we discuss the rights and duties of the civil magistrate relative to churches.
In your view of human freedom do people ever truly have real multiple options that they chose from or are they always enslaved by their nature to one option and moved toward a good option by the grace of God being in a sense acted upon them? Is it valid, in your opinion, to see the unregenerate as stuck in sinful nature away from God waiting for God’s move of grace but that the regenerate are growing into a greater sense of freedom where they truly have options within their nature and God is not directing every move of their life through the giving and withholding of grace? I hope my question is clear enough that you get what I’m asking.
