Dr. James White’s closing statement in a debate with George Bryson over Calvinism
God is God and I am not. Who am I to answer back to God as to why He does or does not choose to save everyone, or to demand Him to treat everyone alike with the same grace? For this would defy the very meaning of grace itself: receiving something you do not deserve, when you are owed wrath.
The power of the Gospel lies in this: Jesus actually and completely purchased certain undeserving sinners at the cross and they will come to faith in His due time, by His doing. Christ’s loving, self-sacrificial work is sufficient for the whole world, but it is particularly saving and efficient for God’s people whom He foreloved in eternity past.
