Election and Theological Unity

The doctrine of election is a deep and wonderful subject to consider, but it can also be a topic of great disagreement. Do not let the theological camps determine what you believe nor scare you away from studying the Word of God yourself.  Study the Word and allow God to encourage you and to teach you about all the great truths in regards to His sovereignty and man’s responsibility as you consider with humility the greatness of your salvation.   Years ago I decided that I will never know all the secret things of God.  I know that I came to Christ, but I also know that I did not save myself.  These two aspects are great truths that I have learned to embrace with joy and wonder.  It is not about Calvinism nor Arminianism, but rather it is about letting God be God and trusting in His Word.
