The Primitive Doctrine of Election


Thomas Blenkarn 1842

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


George Stanley Faber fashions his argument against predestination by examining the works and testimonies from the early Church. Taking issue with both Arminianistic and Calvinistic doctrines of election, Faber argues that predestination was first cited by St. Augustine and not taught by the first fathers of the Church. Exploring the Old and New Testament, Faber’s exploration of free will and faith is thought provoking.
