I have been in some serious study of Reformed Theology/Calvinism/Doctrines of Grace for quite some time now. I do have some questions and thoughts and I would appreciate feedback. 1. Romans 9:22 says, "And what if God, desiring to display His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience objects of wrath ready for destruction?" (Holman Christian Standard Bible) Is there anyway the, "What if" is not talking about something He actually does, but is just making an example of His power? 2. Has anyone on here ever thought that God may only draw those who He knew would accept, meaning all do not get drawn. I ask because when God drew me to repent I do not feel like I could have refused and if God drew everyone the way He drew me, you would have all kinds of lost people saying, "Man, God tried to get me yesterday at church, but I fought Him off, I would not let Him get me." 3. I am almost scared to fully embrace Reformed Theology, because if it is not true, then I am saying that God does not attempt to save all, when He actually does. Again, that's if Reformed Theology is not true. 4. I also struggle with the "world" and "all' verses. I know Reformed theologians teach these words does not mean every, head for head, but I sometimes struggle with the idea that they do not mean every person, head for head, understanding that somtimes they do not, but I struggle to think they do not when the verse(s) are talking about salvation. I love studying Reformed Theology. I think it's fascinating, but I am struggling to go all the way. What do you guys think?
