First, the Bible reveals two different kinds of election, and much confusion has resulted from failing to see this distinction. Abrahamic Election is substantially different from Salvation Election. 1. Election Is Not Fatalistic or Mechanistic. Sometimes those who object to the doctrine of election say that it is "fatalism" or that it presents a "mechanistic system" for the universe. Two somewhat different objections are involved here. By "fatalism" is meant a system in which human choices and human decisions really do not make any difference.

Of course election is only a part of the broader consideration of the entire decree or plan or sovereignty of God. These objections are the ones usually raised against that doctrine. A. It Equals Fatalism Popularly, this objection is expressed like this: "What's going to be is going to be anyway, and I cannot do anything about it.". Three Common Objections to Election Addressed. Although it is certainly inexcusable, it is nevertheless to be expected that the world, lying in the power of Satan, should take offense at the doctrines of God’s free and sovereign grace in the gospel.

  The doctrine of Election is a cardinal teaching of the Scriptures. Doubtless, it is attended with difficulties which are a burden upon all systems of theology alike. However, no word of God may be altered or neglected. No little help is gained when it is remembered that revelation and not reason is the guide to faith. I am not so desperately enamoured, however, of that book as you may be; and I have only used this Article to show you that if you belong to the Establishment of England you should at least offer no objection to this doctrine of predestination. Another human authority whereby I would confirm the doctrine of election, is, the old Waldensian creed.

How can God’s sovereignty over the human will be reconciled with human freedom and responsibility.

The doctrine of election certainly assumes God’s sovereignty over the human will. But it also teaches human freedom and responsibility. Hence, this doctrine is contrary to the revealed nature of God. It Is Contrary to the Nature of Man.

Not only is the Calvinist doctrine of election contrary to the nature of God, it is also contrary to the nature of man. Man is presented in the Scriptures with the ability to choose life or death (cf. Josh. The Biblical Doctrine of Election and Predestination model, completely swells the 'Free Will of Man'6 to a place where it dominates the whole model.

Herein, every aspect of God and every aspect of salvation are being engulfd by the free will of man. This model is grotesquely out of proportion to a clear, literal and logical rendering of God's HolyFile Size: KB.

Pink, Arthur W. PHIL: John, several years ago we offered everyone on the Grace to You mailing list a free copy of a message you taught on the doctrine of election. And the response to that was huge. It was one of th. Election doesn’t create the problem, it only leads us to think about it.

To deny the doctrine of election does not help you escape the issue. All Christians have this problem, and so we cannot object to election by appealing to it. The person who does not believe in election has the same problem: (a) God wants everybody saved.

In my experience with people who make this objection, there is often, if not always, at least one of two common objections behind the objection: 1) God is not fair. It’s the justice or fairness, not the arbitrariness, of election that is the issue, and Romans 9 also speaks clearly to this, though not in terms that necessarily satisfy the.

Election is looking at salvation from God’s side through Jesus Christ. Here is a simple definition of the doctrine of election: God chose Christ. When man chooses Christ, man is chosen of God. “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.” (Lk) [Crucifixion crowd].File Size: 16KB.

"The doctrine of election isn't fair." "Doesn't God give us free will?" "What about John ?" "Why would God save some and not all?" These are just some of the questions and arguments that surround the doctrine of election.

But what does the Bible say about election. In his book and teaching series, Chosen by God, Dr. Sproul carefully explains the meaning of God’s. As Paul anticipated Jewish objections to the preaching of the Gospel of grace to the Gentiles (Rom. ), He explained that God always had "a remnant chosen by people whom he foreknew) (Rom.

By Erwin W. Lutzer | Before beginning a discussion on election, we want our intentions to be clear: since this doctrine has created so much controversy and has been frequently misunderstood, we do not want our understanding of it to be a means of division, but rather a means of unifying believers as we grapple with God.Even though he has not had the use and help of foreign languages, yet I may compare him with that of Timothy in 1 Timothy“He has been long nourished up in the words of faith and good doctrine.” Here he is so well versed in the Bible that he is able to cut the strongest sinews of their best objections and establish the truths in this book.We’re going to return now to the, I trust, refreshment of the Word of God.

We’re talking about the doctrine of election, chosen by God, who chose whom. And this is not without controversy, as you w.
