EPHESIANS 1:4: Being “Chosen” raises the question of election or predestination. “Before the foundation of the world” means what? Are some chosen (predestined) to eternal salvation and others to eternal condemnation? Foreknowledge, predestination, foreordained, being chosen and more are explained.

FORGIVENESS: In What Ways Can We Imitate This Teaching of Christ?

Christ taught that forgiveness is a duty. No limit can be set to the extent of forgiveness (Lu 17:4) and it must be granted without reserve. Jesus will not admit that there is any wrong so gross nor so often repeated that it is beyond forgiveness.
