    RE: *Predestination, the supreme authority of the Bible, and ‘God’s Grace’ as the necessary and sole means of salvation.

    those He *predestined He also called, those He called He also justified, those He justified He also glorified.(Rom 8:3). *proorizó Greek,4309: to predetermine, foreordain

    Just as children do not choose who will adopt them, neither do Christians choose to become children of God. Instead, God chooses them. He predestines them “to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will” (Eph 1:5) chosen by God from “before the foundation of the world” (Eph 1:4).

    For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10
