Unconditional Election and the Free Offer of the Gospel

One of the first points the orthodox Reformed reaffirmed years before the Great Synod of Dort is that God freely offers salvation to all in the “serious” and “promiscuous” or free and well-meant offer of the gospel. We offer the good news to all with the confidence that God has graciously chosen his people, in Christ, from all eternity. This is a valuable, biblical truth well grounded in Scripture, in the Canons, which we need to appreciate again in our day.
