""That God saves from corruption and damnation those whom he has chosen from the foundations of the world, not for any disposition, faith, or holiness that he foresaw in them, but of his mere mercy in Christ Jesus his Son, passing by all the rest according to the irreprehensible reason of his own free-will and justice.""
- Waldensian creed
We have been known, we have been loved, our misery has been seen, we have been drawn, we have been humbled, we have been given life, we have been justified, sanctified, glorified, before the foundation of the world. Our salvation in its entirety has been accomplished and finished before and outside of time.The LAW couldn't annul the promise of God, but enabled it, as the FALL couldn't cancel the afore prepared glory of God in his saints, but enabled it, so that even the fall is ultimately and finally for our good.
Why God chooses not to save some is not in our business, but his choice of many within our own nation and abroad is our life commitment and business. As Paul the Apostle said "I endure everything for the sake of the elect ....that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory."
