This week’s term: Election – The activity of God in choosing out of Adam’s fallen and depraved race, certain individuals to eternal salvation and glory. This is absolutely unconditional, in that this choice, as revealed in scripture, is not based upon any seen or foreseen goodness in action or nobility of character, as the reason for those objects of choice to be chosen.
Last week’s term: Depravity – The inherent condition of all Adam’s fallen race, in which every part and attribute of man’s being is deprived off the glorious state in which Adam was created. This depravity is total, not in its intensity, but in its extent. (Romans 3)
