Theology-image

This week’s term: Foreknowledge – (Greek – prog-no-sis) Foreordination, or the eternal loving knowledge or intent, according to which God purposes to bring His elect into the glory of His Son.

Last week’s term: Preterition – The non-activity or passiveness of God, by which He, according only to His sovereign will, passes over those who are not elected unto salvation, leaving them in their unregenerate and condemned state.
