Romans 8:28-31


This morning, Pastor Brett discusses the topics of Calvinism and Arminianism, predestination and foreknowledge. In Romans 8:28-29, Paul writes about “the called”, and we see Biblical examples of predestination for both Calvinism and Arminianism in Exodus 8, where we read about some of Pharaoh’s choices. Were they God’s decisions, or Pharaoh’s?
