Election: God's Selection
The choice that God made
We have reached the end of our surveys on the words related to election, and have found that scripture does not indicate that they were used in the sense of individuals pre-selected for salvation. The implications of this are profound, and we may now find it needful to re-evaluate our understanding of a number of passages. We may also need to come to an understanding of what it means to be elect. It is evident this was a significant concept in the New Testament, but what was the significance? Perhaps it would be good to take a small peek at what the concept of election meant to the apostles.
