Overview

Predestination teaches that God doesn’t love us because we’re lovely; God loves us with a love that makes us lovely. Intriguingly,the apostle Paul uses the seemingly problematic doctrine of predestination in order to heal divisions in the Corinthian church. When we realize that we contributed nothing to our salvation – that even our faith is a gift from God – we can become humble men and women that boast only in the cross of Christ. It is only when we make that boast and cease boasting in ourselves that we can become true agents of healing and reconciliation.
