My Book Review: The Invisible Hand by Dr. R.C. Sproul

The Invisible Hand by Dr. R.C. SproulHow can a God of love allow suffering and injustice in the world? Why we had to go through such awful events last year? Why is He allowing confusion sometimes, to cry and be in pain. Why there’s no answer to my prayer?

Although people today have some answers and approach this subject in different ways, the biblical answer to the problem of evil and suffering is the only true and liberating answer you can find.

Sproul is presenting God and His ways with a wonderful logic and clear insight. He is very biblical in his style of defending the truth about God’s sovereignty and providence.

In a very generous and warm environment, he is calling us to trust this good and loving God who really has all things in His hands and does not allow something in your life without a holy purpose, often misunderstood by us.

We are called to embrace these dark moments with hope, always recognizing God’s love and care, and believe that, as he is saying … the providence of God is our fortress, our shield, and our very great reward. It is what provides courage and perseverance for His saints.

Eternal Security

Adrian Rogers wrote, „Nothing can separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus your Lord. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 8:38-39)  Neither death nor anything that happens after death, or anything that happens while you’re living can separate you from God’s love. If there were no other verse in the Bible that deals with eternal security, this one covers the base.

„Some people say, ‘Well, if I believed in this doctrine, then I’d get saved and I’d sin all I want to.’ Friend, I sin all I want to. I sin more than I want to. I don’t want to! When you get saved you get your wanter fixed. As a matter of fact, you get a brand new wanter.”
