Free Will From Strange Fire Off God's Altar

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Greek mythology, Prometheus (Ancient Greek: Προμηθεύς, "forethought") is a Titan known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals for their use. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with (or blamed for) playing a pivotal role in the early history of humankind.

Arminians not content with a sovereign God who decrees the elect to salvation from before the foundation of the earth created a tradition of men that would not be bound by an insurmountable depravity. Rather men would be either redeemable or enabled prematurely to decide for themselves and determine their own destinies.

Adrian Rogers, like Prometheus, stole strange fire off the altar of Deity and freely offered it to whoever would receive it. Many others like him preached decisional regeneration in which the sinner would surrender to an evangelism technique designed to elicit a decision. That choice rendered the sinner saved and a candidate for baptism and continued discipleship if he wanted a deeper experience.

Prometheus was rejected by Zeus and the mortals, however innumerable mortals celebrated Dr Rogers as a great man.
