Socinians, Arminians and Our Confession
Series LBCF - Chapter 3
How can the free actions of free creatures be known by God beforehand. So the Socinians have concluded that God's Decree is conditional based on what man would do – and God's Decree is a plan in process.
God's decree is certain and absolute – but only certain and absolute because God looked ahead and foresaw what would happen. For instance, God looks ahead and sees who will choose him – and then ratifies that choice. God's decree doesn't come first – but man's choice.
Refutes both the Socinian and Arminian position – based on the primacy of God's Decree.
