Soteriology #2 – Unconditional Election

This week we cover a subject that can lead to some heated discussion. This is quite natural considering the battle between Unconditional Election and Conditional Election historically. The question of what part God plays and what part we play is affected by our concept of free will, which we talked about in our last course of study, Humanity and Sin. This week we gave and overview of the topic and gave a defense for Unconditional Election. Next week we give a defense for Conditional Election and then look at a way to bridge the gap between these two views.
