Lutheran Predestination–Does It Exist?

If you want to bring up a concept that causes Lutherans to stumble and scratch their heads looking for an answer, it has to be the idea of predestination. Other Christians have their thoughts, but we Lutherans wrestle with the thought of God wanting all people to be saved but yet some end up in hell because of their unbelief in the promises of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ.

I invite you to read Matthew Block’s post at First Things where he does a very nice job explaining Lutheran predestination. You can read it here.

I find Mr. Block’s explanation to be thorough and very helpful. I pray you feel the same.
