Moving on from the previous thread of Total Depravity we end on the TULIP acronym, letter U.
U standing for Unconditional Election...
What scriptures and arguments are there to support Election being 1) Unconditional or 2) Conditional?
If one starts with the premise that we cannot (unable) to choose God UNLESS God first chooses to do a work in us so that we respond by faith to him, then it ties in with Total Depravity and would render election UNCONDITIONAL.
However if one starts with the premise that we can choose God through our free will then in turn denies Total depravity, one holds that the choice has been given to us by God and he is waiting for us to respond by faith to him that therefore would render election CONDITIONAL.
Which is a biblical and accurate picture of how election takes place?
