Salvation & Predestination

BoydEddyYouTube 150x150 Salvation & PredestinationPaul Eddy and Greg Boyd take a short look at predestination & election within Romans 9 and Ephesians 1. As Paul mentions the idea that God chooses some and not others almost derailed his faith.

More than Romans 8,9 and Ephesians 1, Mark 13:20 bugs me.
Mark 13:20     If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.

2 Timothy 2:10     Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

This seems more in line with the rest of the reading of the Bible. If we didn’t have free will, even though drawn by God, Paul’s effort for the elect in obtaining salvation would have no meaning. Love wouldn’t exist either. The Bible presents an indeterminate Creation determined by God’s will and where he chooses not to express his will totally, while receiving varying levels of influence from him,  the choices of those he has created.
