“The most tremendous judgment of God in this world is the hardening of the hearts of men.” John Owen

“And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” Exodus 14
Why did God harden Pharaoh's heart? The Bible also tells us, “And Pharaoh hardened his heart.” God simply let Pharaoh have his way. In other words, He gave Pharaoh over to his own desires. God will not force His Lordship on us because love demands that we be free to love Him in return. But, this freedom is a two-edged sword. We can choose to refuse God His rightful place in our lives. The Hell we create is the result of doing so. C. S. Lewis is right: “The doors of Hell are locked on the inside.” Conversations Within” ts 3/12/2013 (Jax, FL)
