In this article on election and the free offer of the gospel, the author looks at election in an evangelism and mission context. Things like the call of the gospel, the well-meant offer of the gospel in the preaching, the general (universal) calling and effectual calling, and unconditional election is discussed.
This article is about the indiscriminate or free offer of the gospel to all sinners. The author looks at a few different authors' view of the free offer, and also specifically at John Calvin's view. He also discusses the free offer of the gospel and the reprobate and the inability of man to respond in faith except through the work of the Spirit.
As the author carefully explains what is entailed in the doctrine of unconditional election, he also attempts to answer the following question: how can believers say that the gospel must be preached in all the world, that men must be born again of the Spirit through the preaching of the gospel, and at the same time hold on to the doctrine of the election?
