I'm a big fan of MacArthur and I've always enjoyed his teachings so thanks for posting these. I'm just about to finish a series by Driscoll and as soon as I do this will be next on my list.
There are lots of Biblical principles that our finite, sinful minds will never be able to fully comprehend, that doesn't mean that they aren't clearly taught in Scripture. Divine Election is mentioned throughout the Old Testament and New Testament. It's there, but people simply don't want to see it because it contradicts our corrupted understanding of justice, fairness and free will.
