“Pharaoh’s hardened heart” Justin Taylor’s ideas.

I have read material of Justin’s in the past.  Normally,  thoughtful and engaging. This article jumped out today as timely.  I know that lots of folks question the issue of Pharaoh’s heart.  Why are so many verses reflective of the issue?  Why Does the Lord do this?  How does the sovereignty of God play into all of this?

I skimmed through the post and will process the information at a later time. See what you think about the matter.  What have you concluded in the matter? How would you have done things differently if you were Pharaoh?  Or the Lord?

If you want to take the time to read through, it is certainly thought provoking. Here is the article for you pleasure.  Enjoy.  If you have a response, I’d love to hear it.
