"If I had my way, I would declare a moratorium on public preaching of 'the plan of salvation' in America for one to two years. Then I would call on everyone who has use of the airways and the pulpits to preach the holiness of God, the righteousness of God and the law of God, until sinners would cry out, 'What must we do to be saved?' Then I would take them off in a corner and whisper the gospel to them. Such drastic action is needed because we have gospel-hardened a generation of sinners by telling them how to be saved before they have any understanding why they need to be saved."

Is a "gospel-hardened generation" any barrier whatsoever to our Soverign God's will being worked out in the salvation of the elect according to his gracious plan? If a person is "gospel-hardened" is the soverign work of salvation then more difficult for our Lord?
