Leonard called to ask about this challenging passage in Romans:
“What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction?” (Romans 9:22)
Is this just a hypothetical? Who are the “vessels of wrath”? Does Romans 9 somehow support the idea of an irresistible calling by God to salvation for select individuals? Do others have no hope?
In this video, I address Leonard’s concerns and discuss the true meaning of Romans 9 in context. So if you have ever wondered about this passage, I hope this short clip is both encouraging and clarifying!
