Holding the tension between the two is fun and tough. I heard the tension stated in the negative today. I liked the way it was put:
The Word of God knows nothing of an irresponsible man [not accountable for his own actions] or an unsovereign God [not wise and good over all things].
Holding this tension has contrition hard-wired into its appropriation. Bishop J. C. Ryle also adds discerning words:
I have long come to the conclusion that men may be more systematic in their statements of the Bible, and may be led into grave error by idolatrous veneration of a system.
