So I was in a conversation this Thanksgiving day weekend with another pastor of a Christian Church. (Just in case you don't know, a "Christian Church" is actually a denomination. It is a sister church of the Church of Christ.) Now they have some particular distinctives, one of which is baptismal regeneration, which is the idea that a person is not saved until they are baptized. That's problematic. But deeper than that problem resides how one views God. Everything flows from how we view man and how we view God. That's where the conversation got interesting. It quickly rested--where it needed to--on the subject of God's sovereignty.
But...what does it mean for God to be sovereign?
