Eternal justification?


No. Eternal love



Does God, on the basis of eternal love, regard the sinner as being righteous before the imputation of the righteousness of Christ by faith? If so, how is that not eternal justification?

God's foreknowledge controls the actions of evil men and puts a limitation on them so that they minister to the salvation of the elect.


What does this mean? "minister to the salvaiton of the elect?'


God will not permit the wickedness of sinners to interfere with the salvation of the elect but uses their wickedness as instrumentalities of His will to save the elect.
