Universal Sovereignty doctrine is just mis-direction to hide the doctrine of Salvation.
its a most stupid scenario and even the most committed theist must see the madness of it, so basically any angel with thoughts of rebellion could go up to the creator of the universe and lay down a challenge and god just blindly accepts it? regardless of all the work he's put into creating the first couple and housing them in the Garden of Eden, surely there were masses of R&F angles shaking their heads in disbelief? the so called "vindication of gods name" which is meant to be what this dick waving competition is all about makes the credibility and wondrous loving nature of god even more repugnant to me, a stupid, irresponsible,petty,angry,vindictive,sick,perverted,blood thirsty,voyeuristic deity and I'm even more convicted in my vision/thoughts of her/him.
What? Does not the potter have authority over the clay+ to make from the same lump one vessel for an honorable use, another for a dishonorable use? 22 What, then, if God had the will to demonstrate his wrath and to make his power known, and he tolerated with much patience vessels of wrath made fit for destruction?
This is one of the most disgusting verses in the bible.
