The other side of the coin in this particular discussion may be God’s sovereignty. So the same question supplies. Sovereign over what? What is the extent of God’s sovereignty? How does He apply it in our lives if at all?
The challenge with many of these discussions is that we use terms and assume those in the conversation know what we mean. That, in my experience, is rarely the case. To make matters worse, most times the parties do not have the patience to take the time to explain what they mean. The result? The discussion escalates with neither side really understanding what the other is saying.
That might happen from time to time in our families as well. Ya think?
