THE DANGERS OF M.G.T. (MORAL GOVERNMENT THEOLOGY): (PART 5)
Let's look at the doctrine of Government or the complete Sovereign Rule of God
MGT says that God does not have sovereign control over earthly events. They would say that acts and responds as a result of man's choices.
The bible teaches however that God has sovereign control over all matters and things of the world and will, in the end, work all things out according to His will and purposes.
Job 42:2 ESV “I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
Romans 8:28 ESV And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Psalms 97:1 ESV The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!
Matthew 6:10 ESV Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Let's now look at the doctrine of the Omniscience or the All-Knowing and Foreknowledge of God.
MGT says that God does not know His future actions.
MGT says that God does not know ahead of time the free decisions of humans.
The Scriptures say that God does know His future actions (Is. 46:9,10). The Scriptures say that God, in His eternal nature, does know the free decisions of man ahead of time (Jn. 13:38; 1 Sam. 23:12).
