Theology-image

This week’s term: Sufferance – The activity, or passivity, of God in allowing wicked deeds to be carried out, with the limitations of eternally purposed restraints.

Last week’s term: Forbearance – The patient activity of God, by which He allows violators of His holy law and revealed will to continue until the fulfillment of their iniquity or their conversion.
