|Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957)|
Dorothy Sayers, from the introduction to her translation of the Inferno, quoted in Dante's Divine Comedy: Inferno, a prose translation by Kathryn Lindskoog.
We make free choices. God is absolutely sovereign. These two ideas seem contradictory but they are a paradox of the Christian faith. Greater thinkers than myself have written volumes on this topic but one of the themes of the Inferno (and indeed the Scripture) is that our actions (big or small, weighty or "inconsequential") have eternal implications. Thank God for His grace given through Jesus Christ!
