“When we begin to deal with words like foreordination, election, predestination, foreknowledge, etc., I feel that we, with our finite minds, treat God as if He were a great big computer. He isn’t that at all. He has a heart bigger than the whole universe. When I was in seminary studying theology, it seemed pretty important to know whether or not foreknowledge comes before foreordination; but frankly, since that time I have not been concerned with which comes first. I realize now that the important thing is that Christ was “foreknown before the foundation of the world but was manifest in these last times for you.” To put it very simply, the Cross of Christ was not an ambulance sent to a wreck. Christ was the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world because God knew all the time that Vernon McGee would need a Savior, and He loved him enough to provide that Savior. I don’t need a computer to go over this. I only need a God with a great big heart of love who provided redemption by His grace”
