The presupposition of the sovereignty of God is common among Christians

The decree of God has been the subject of too much debate in the history of the church. The reality is that the parties in these disputes are often much closer to one another than they admint. The happy truth is that those who dispute the absolute lordship of God check their arguments at the door when they enter their closets to pray. – Chad Van Dixhoorn, Confessing the Faith, 47
