From Tonight's Compline

Today if you hear the voice of the Lord, harden not your hearts. (Ps. 95)


  1. Impossible. Only God hardens hearts, unilaterally.

  2. Do I detect a bit of sarcasm in that reply?

  3. I suppose with the recent discussions here with Calvinists that it could have been seen that I was still going on that theme, but in reality, I was just moved by the Psalm and it brought back memories of going to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with my daughter - and the way they sang the responsorial Psalm still rings in my soul.  However, along the lines of the recent theme, that's a good question to ask of Calvinists - how would it be possible for US to harden our heart if God is the one who hardens?  
    A blessed Lent to you Nick.

  4.  And thus far, not a Calvinist has responded.

I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
