THE BLUE ISLAND THESES.
I. God has irrevocably elected unto salvation before the foundation of the world all those who are saved in time.
II. Election is revealed in the Scriptures, and is therefore no more “a mystery” than any other article of faith.
III. Election is revealed in the Gospel and not in the law.
IV. The Gospel directs us to Christ — God has elected in Christ,
V. Christ’s merit is considered in election not merely as obtained for us, but also as apprehended by us — God has elected in view of faith. [[@Page:577]]
