Romans 9:22-23 is thought to support a Calvinistic understanding of the doc- trine of man. Consequently, some non-Calvinists avoid it or surround it with disconnected proof texts more friendly to their anthropology. Interaction with what John Piper calls four problems in Romans 9:22-23 will yield the follow- ing understanding of this scripture: God’s sovereign purpose is to reveal the wealth of his glory (wrath, power, mercy) through Jesus to those who have resist- ed his will and made themselves fit for destruction so that they might present themselves solely to God in worship and prove by their new manner of life that God’s will is good and glorious.
