Second booklet in The Works and Letters of Cleve Brantley - The Tie that Binds

20th Nov 2020

The subtitle of the second booklet, "The Tie That Binds" - in our forthcoming book, The Works and Letters of Cleve Brantley - is a good summary of what is included: The doctrine of predestination. The foreordination and election of God and his attendant providence. The sovereignty and will of God as opposed to the sovereignty and will of man.

A quote from the booklet, "God does no violence to man’s will. He leaves men free to choose. As a matter of fact, men cannot help choosing. He chooses every day. He chooses in every realm. He chooses in salvation. Nevertheless God controls man’s will as surely as he controls the stars. It is here that men stumble and fall. Because God leaves men free to choose, they delude themselves and imagine that it is their will and choice that brings things to pass; when, as a matter of fact man’s will has never determined one single event in the world’s history and never will. God’s will alone determines events and brings them to pass. It is true that men do act according to their choice, will, intellect, and reason, but this is not the whole truth. The whole truth is that every event, circumstance, opportunity, happening, thought, good or bad, that influences and motivates man’s choice is foreordained of God."

This book should be released in mid-December. Stay tuned!
