How can you sit on this mortal coil and say faith is not why we are elect?
Because your position simply isn't Biblical.
The bible doesn't help you with such a proclamation and forces you to make a grand assumption that is not supportable.
YOU are the one making the "grand assumption that is not supportable".
It is far safer to accept the truth that God foreknows every faithful soul in Christ and predestines each as the apostle says ... 'For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.'
That says nothing about "foreseen faith".
As I said above, the only purpose in doing so is to add a philosophical element.
YOU are the one "adding a philosophical element".
You end up with a 'double predestination' that has God making an arbitrary selection of souls, one for eternal glory, the other for eternal damnation. Election is not as black and white as the Calvinist tries to make it because it basically lacks the black and white text of scripture to support it.
"Foreseen faith" is not as black and white as the Arminian tries to make it because it basically lacks the black and white text of scripture to support it.
1. Which is first, Election, or Faith Truly Foreseen, so that God elected his people according to faith foreseen?
The concept of "faith foreseen" is unBiblical.
Election happens from before the foundation of the world.
Faith happens during a person's lifetime.
Therefore election happens prior to faith.
