Chapter 3: Of God’s Eternal Decree

 

1. God, from all eternity, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely and unchangeably ordained[1] all things and events that happen;a yet in such manner that neither is God the author [originator] of sin,b nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures. Nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes[2] taken away, but rather established.c

8. The doctrine of this high mystery of predestination is to be handled with special prudence and care, in such manner that:a

Men who attend to the will of God revealed in His Word and yield obedience to it, may:

From the certainty of their effectual calling, be assured of their eternal election.b

Thus, this doctrine will afford reasons for praise, reverence, and admiration of God,c and reasons for humility, diligence, and abundant consolation to all who sincerely obey the Gospel.d

[1] ordain: to decree and establish, to cause to happen

[2] If something is dropped, it will fall due to the force of gravity. This is an example of a second cause. Natural laws are laws because God executes His providence in nature in a consistent and orderly manner in keeping with His holy, wise, faithful, and logical character. Miracles are merely when He does something different for a special purpose.

[4] grace: the freely given and unmerited favor of God

[5] elect: all those who are expressly chosen by God for eternal life

[6] justify: to declare guiltless

[7] sanctify: to make holy, set apart for God. In the Christian life, to progressively die more and more to sin and live more and more for Christ.

[8] Salvation and justification are not the same thing. Justification is a one-time act in which the believer is declared free of the guilt of sin. Salvation is a whole package of gifts, including justification, adoption, sanctification, glorification, and so on.

[9] The ordering of items in these lists refers to the time-order in which God brings them to pass.
