Saw a course on Luther that planned to discuss his teachings, including his "disturbing" ideas about predestination. Well, let's forget Luther for the minute. Is predestination disturbing or comforting? God doesn't put things in the Bible to make us smart but to make us holy. Rom. 8:28-30 are some of the most blessed verses in the Bible. As I understand the verses, Paul relates a chain of five links: foreknown > predestined > called > justified > glorified. These links will not be broken. Each and every one who is foreknown will be glorified. Do you agree? Does the idea of predestination scare you or comfort you?
