    Be Grateful for the Doctrine of Election

    Uncomfortable with the Doctrine of Election That the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls. — Romans 9:11 Before us we have a verse from a passage of Scripture (Romans 9) that gives more than a few people an uneasy feeling.
