      Predestination, according to the Roman Church, has two forms. even to the point of calling him “Blessed Thomas” (Patriarch Gennadios Scholarios and others mentioned by Fr. John Meyendorff in his work on Byzantine Theology). Even our good works are prepared beforehand by God. However, this is not to be set in opposition to free will.   As many of you know, I was very fond of the teaching of RC Sproul. Often when I am discussion a topic, I have included an article by men such as RC Sproul. Recently, when duscussing predestination I gave an article by RC Sproul on predestination and .

Whence, the predestined must strive after good works and prayer; because through these means predestination is most certainly fulfilled.

For this reason it is said: "Labor more that by good works you may make sure your calling and election" (2 Peter ). Reply to Objection 1. So with regard to point #2 (i.e.

whether reprobation is just or good), St. Thomas and Calvin do not mean that same thing by the term ‘reprobation,’ so the fact that they both believed that ‘reprobation’ is just or good does not show that St. Thomas thought that the Calvinistic doctrine of reprobation is just or good.

The Strassburg Formula of Concord sets forth the Scriptural and peculiarly Lutheran point of view in the doctrine of election, according to which a Christian, in order to attain to a truly divine assurance of his election and final salvation, is to consider predestination not a priori, but a posteriori.

Predestination. This word is properly used only with reference to God's plan or purpose of salvation. The Greek word rendered "predestinate" is found only in these six passages, Acts ; Romans Romans ; 1 Corinthians ; Ephesians Ephesians ; and in all of them it has the same teach that the eternal, sovereign, immutable, and unconditional decree or.28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Calvin’s view of predestination leads to carelessness as well.
