A reader of my blog e-mailed me the following: "If Calvinism is true, please explain this verse:"
"But the LORD said to Moses, "Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book." -Exodus 32:33
I'm running full speed at Bible camp this week, and don't have much free time to interact. Perhaps some of the blog readers would like to respond. I did look up John Gill's comments on this passage, but wasn't fully satisfied with his answer.
John Gill on this passage:
"...not that anyone that is really in the book of life is ever blotted out, or that anyone predestinated or ordained to eternal life ever perish: but some persons may think themselves, and they may seem to be written in that book, or to be among the number of God's elect, but are not, and turn out obstinate impenitent sinners, and live and die in impenitence and unbelief; when it will appear that their names were never written in it, which, is the same thing as to be blotted."Thoughts?
