Why isn’t God “Sovereign” in the parables of Jesus?

Luk 10:31 – And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

How come Jesus didn’t say, “and by the Sovereignty of God there came down a certain priest?”

According to Calvinists, God must be “Sovereign” or else He cannot be God. And Sovereignty, to them, means He is causing and controlling all things.

John Calvin said, “Nothing happens by chance.” (The Institutes of Christian Religion, Book I, Ch. 16, Sect. 4).

Why would Jesus even tell a parable where God was not Sovereign? What kind of world did His parables take place in? What kind of world was His parables supposed to be analogous of?

Logical Conclusion: The God that Jesus taught about in His parables was not the god of Calvinism.

One Response to Why Wasn’t God “Sovereign” in the Parables of Jesus? Jesse Morrell Refutes Calvinism

  1. If Jesus taught in such a way as to teach that God is not causing and controlling all events, then shouldn’t we do the same? A Calvinist preacher that teaches “Sovereignty” in such a way as to make God the cause of all things is therefore un-Christ-like.
