God's Plan for the World



Westminster Confession of Faith -- Chapter 3, Paragraph 1

God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass: yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.




Westminster Shorter Catechism -- Question & Answer 20

Q: Did God leave all mankind to perish in the estate of sin and misery?
A: God, having out of his mere good pleasure, from all eternity, elected some to everlasting life, did enter into a covenant of grace to deliver them out of the estate of sin and misery, and to bring them into an estate of salvation by a Redeemer.


Jesus Christ, the Lord, is our Redeemer.
