Bonar On God’s Sovereignty

God’s Sovereignty

“You are perplexed by the doctrine of God’s sovereignty and election. I wonder that any man believing in a God should be perplexed by these. For if there be a God, a King, eternal, immortal, and invisible, He cannot but be sovereign – and He cannot but do according to His own will and choose according to His own purpose. You may dislike these doctrines, but you can only quit of them by denying altogether the existence of an infinitely wise, glorious, and powerful Being. God would not be God were He not thus absolutely sovereign in His present doings and His eternal pre-arrangements.”

******************************

This quote from Horatius Bonar, a Scottish Presbyterian pastor, was taken from “God’s Way of Peace – A Book For The Anxious” (1862).
