Types of Sovereignty

Posted by

Greetings! In my discussions with fellow philosophers I have often come across people likening the sovereignty of God to earthly sovereignty. They have done this in an attempt to show that God can be sovereign over the universe and still leave us with certain freedoms. I don’t agree that this is possible, and in this video I describe some of the distinguishing characteristics of God’s sovereignty which make Him different from an earthly sovereign such as the Queen of England.

What did you think of the video? Do you agree with the distinction I drew between the different types of sovereignty? Comments are open over on YouTube, and you’re welcome to leave your thoughts on the video over there. Also, consider subscribing to my channel if you’d like to follow along with this series and be notified as soon as new videos are released, every Thursday.

In next week’s video I’ll be moving on from talking about God’s attributes to a discussion of how God relates to the human mind. Thank you for watching and I’ll see you again very soon.
