- How does Paul show that in this election of men God retains absolute liberty of action:
a. without compromising his own righteousness, and
b. without giving man any just ground for complaint? See verses 14-22. At the same time, observe how Paul lays emphasis on God’s mercy. See verses 15, 16, 23-26.
- What is the purpose of God’s election, and how do the scriptures which Paul quotes illuminate that purpose? How does this truth concern me?
