What does the Bible say
   about election?
“By the decree of God, for the
manifestation of his glory, some
men and angels are predestined
unto everlasting life, and others
foreordained to everlasting
death. These angels and men,
thus predestined and
foreordained, are particularly
and unchangeably designed; and
their number is so certain and
definite that it cannot be either
increased or diminished”
   (Westminster Confession of Faith,
                Chapter III, vs. 3,4).
