Chapter 3: Of God’s Eternal Decree (I)

I. God from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely, and unchangeable ordain whatsoever comes to pass;(a) yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin,(b) nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures; nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.(c)

(a) Ephesians 1:11; Romans 11:33; Hebrews 6:17; Romans 9:15, 18

(b) James 1:13, 17; 1 John 1:5

(c) Acts 2:23; Matthew 17:12; Acts 4:27, 28; John 19:11; Proverbs 16:33
