WCF 4:2 We are Made in the Image of God

4:2. After God had made everything else, he created mankind. He made them male and female, with rational and immortal souls, endowed with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, after his own image. They had the law of God written in their hearts and had power to fulfill it. They were, however, under a possibility of transgressing, being left to the liberty of their own will, which was subject to change. In addition to this law written in their hearts, they received a command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. As long as they obeyed this command, they were happy in their communion with God and had dominion over the creatures. God saved the best for last! Mankind

In the distribution of His electing grace, God passes by unbelievers for their sin and to display his justice. This raises many questions for us. Why didn’t God choose everyone? Isn’t this unfair?

WCF 3:6 Precious Means to a Glorious End

Westminster Confession 3:6 As God has appointed the elect to glory, so he has—by the eternal and most free purpose of his will—foreordained all the means to that end. Therefore, his chosen ones, all of them being fallen in Adam, are redeemed by Christ and are effectually called to faith in Christ by his Spirit working in due season.
