It Is No Light Thing To Reject Any Part of Eternal Truth
It is no light thing to reject any part of eternal truth—such as sovereign election. Nay, it is a most solemn and serious matter so to do. God’s Word is not given to us to pick and choose from—to single out those portions which appeal to us, and to disdain whatever does not commend itself to our reason and sentiments. God’s Word is given to us as a whole, and by it each of us must yet be judged. To reject the grand truth of God’s sovereign election is the height of impiety—for to repudiate the doctrine, is to repudiate the God of election. It is a refusal to bow before His high sovereignty. It is the corrupt creature opposing himself against the holy Creator. It is presumptuous pride which insists upon being the determiner of its own destiny.
