This is a post for Kieth Talbot over at In Submission to Sovereignty. A good brother in the Lord out of Hotlanta. I thought about this and would love to dialogue more about it. The question is “do we really believe that God could save the false prophet? Our answer should be yes. I once said we shouldn’t pray for them and after applying my head knowledge (theology) to my heart (the Regenerated heart the seedbed of emotions where theology is applied to make actions) I had to say God saves bad people throughout history including myself. I am pretty sure those who saw me as a teenager prayed for God’s mercy on me while I destroyed their neighborhoods by ambitiously engaging in the entrepreneurship endeavor of the Dope Game. I appreciate their prayers and intercession for me so in light of God’s mercy I too shall pray for the “worst” (how highly we think of ourselves) of men. Who knows as Kieth says “it could happen”
Here’s one for the readers. I often wonder, of all the “Pulpit Pimps” out there, who is the most likely to see the light? Which of them is most likely to recant their false teachings, forsake their vast fortunes and start preaching the Gospel?
I realize this is the height of wishful thinking; but let us not forget that God called a former persecutor of the church and made him the Apostle to the gentiles and author of two-thirds of the New Testament. The bottom-line is . . . no one is beyond the power of God to redeem. NOBODY.
