Submission to Circumstances - S. D. Gordon

“There is a good deal of meek submission by Christian people that is both cowardly and sinful. What comes along is yielded to as God's will. Whereas a great deal of what comes along is not His will, but is the result of the planning of the evil one. ”
Gordon, Samuel D. Quiet Talks on The Tempter (New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1910), p. 179

The result of the Calvinistic idea of sovereignty is lazy passivisim, or submission to all circumstances as if everything that happens is the will of God. God's command for us to resist the devil (James 4:7) is meaningless in this man-made philosophical system. Calvinism is the coward's way of being relieved of the need to persist in prayer and walk in aggressive victory over the enemy.
