The Sovereignty of God
A. W. Pink writes, 'From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives, that God still observes, that God still reigns'. Pink asks this in this introductory study of the sovereignty of God. To relieve the panic-stricken believer Pink's answer encourages us to '' Fear not! . . . all things are working together for good to them that love God . . . '' Quoting freely from Scripture he searches the Scriptures and tackles the profoundest questions, responding in language written for the ease and interest of any inquiring Christian. It would be foolish for us to expect that this work will meet with general approval. The trend of modern theology—if theology it can be called—is ever toward the deification of the creature rather than the glorification of the Creator, and the leaven of present-day Rationalism is rapidly permeating the whole of Christendom. Few, very few, today, really believe in the complete ruin and total depravity of man. Those who speak of man’s "free will," and insist upon his inherent natural power to either accept or reject the Saviour, apart from an effectual work of the Holy Spirit ... do but voice their ignorance of the real condition of Adam’s fallen children. And if there are few who believe that, so far as he is concerned, the condition of the sinner is entirely hopeless, there are fewer still who really believe in the absolute Sovereignty of God.
