Is God Sovereign - King of kings or Ultimate Cause?
Many Calvinist Preachers, Teachers and Commentators will assert that whatsoever comes to pass does so because it was God's will, that at some point in eternity past God decreed all things including evil and wickedness. In this view, God is somehow lessened if something happens He did not cause.
However, this view does not elevate God as it adherents mistakenly believe. Instead, such claims make God out to be a devil behind Satan, commanded murder, adultery and every evil ever perpetrated. In this episode of Idol Killer we consider the errors of the Calvinist view of Sovereignty, as well as what the Bible actually says about God and the basic definitions of the term.
