Chapter 10: Of Effectual Calling (IV)

IV. Others, not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word,(a) and may have some common operations of the Spirit,(b) yet they never truly come unto Christ, and therefore cannot be saved:(c) much less can men, not professing the Christian religion, be saved in any other way whatsoever, be they never so diligent to frame their lives according to the light of nature, and the laws of that religion they do profess.(d) And to assert and maintain that they may, is very pernicious, and to be detested.(e)

(a) Matthew 22:14
(b) Matthew 7:22; Matthew 13:20, 21; Hebrews 6:4, 5
(c) John 6:64-65; John 8:24
(d) Acts 4:12; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:12; John 4:22; John 17:3
(e) 2 John 1:9-11; 1 Corinthians 16:22; Galatians 1:6-8
