Many questions I get as the pastor of NEHBC are not unique to just one person. Many people face the same struggles, don’t know how to face situations, need guidance in thinking biblically about a topic or just want to know what God thinks about something. I will take time to answer your questions on Tuesday afternoons. The best way to submit a question is via text to 24587. Type ASKNATHAN followed by your question and then look for the answer on Tuesdays.
Q: What do you think about predestination?
A: This is often the big white elephant in the room and something we need to talk about for the health of NEHBC. You can get a good understanding of what I think about predestination in my sermon from Ephesians 1:4. The full sermon is available to watch here.
Ephesians 1:4-6 Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
