The Society of Christian Philosophers: UK is pleased to announce its second workshop, on the theme of Divine Grace, Human Freedom, and the Way of Salvation.
How are we saved? Is it purely an act of God: ‘For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast’ (Ephesians 2.8-9). Or do we play some part in it: ‘Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but must endure God’s wrath’ (John 3.36). If it is purely an act of God, it seems human freedom is lost. But if we play some part in it, it seems we haven’t really fallen, so don't really need to be saved. So, how can salvation be by grace, where it is a gift of God, and also through faith, where we contribute to it? This workshop explores these interlocking themes of divine grace and human freedom as they chart the way of our salvation.
