We are beginning a new heading this week! The next twenty-eight terms will be “Words and Terms Describing the Saving Activities of God”. There are some great terms in this section! I hope you’ll join me for this systematic study.
This week’s term: Soteriology – Soter (health) -ology (science or study). When used theologically, soteriology deals with the Biblical doctrines of salvation. Under this heading rightly fall all of the issues which both demand and declare God’s saving grace for His people.
Last week’s term: Sufferance – The activity, or passivity, of God in allowing wicked deeds to be carried out, with the limitations of eternally purposed restraints.
