Team Calvin: Question Four

DD. Lamentations 3:31-33

For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not afflict from his heart or grieve the children of men.

Vox, does the Lord cause grief? If so, does he act against his will?
Yes, on occasion, when it is necessary in order to fulfill His grand design of Man's salvation and the reclamation of a fallen world. This does not mean He is the cause of all grief.

No, He does not act against His will, although since He acts against things He previously willed, such as when He removed Saul's kingship and gave it to David, it is obvious that His will is both dynamic and responsive to the consequences of Man's free will.

Hi Vox Readers,

All of the comments (and there were many) resulting from this post were deleted when Vox switched to a new commenting system.

But if you'd like to read a (admittedly biased) summary of the discussion from one of the Calvinist arguers (me), please go here.

And if you'd like to see my summary of the more unique segment of Vox's theology, you can go here.
