John Piper: Are There Two Wills in God?

JP: Mike Riley mentioned this article in today’s lesson. I read it earlier this week.

Are There Two Wills in God? Divine Election and God’s Desire for All to Be Saved


My aim here is to show from Scripture that the simultaneous existence of God’s will for “all persons to be saved” (1 Tim. 2:4) and his will to elect unconditionally those who will actually be saved is not a sign of divine schizophrenia or exegetical confusion. A corresponding aim is to show that unconditional election therefore does not contradict biblical expressions of God’s compassion for all people, and does not nullify sincere offers of salvation to everyone who is lost among all the peoples of the world.
