Most of the articles on these WebPages have been written by godly men with a central belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. However as with most of us, they may have different beliefs concerning some particular doctrines. These articles have been made available for the purpose of “gleaning the good” where good can be found. I do not necessarily endorse all that is written by others, anymore than I expect others to endorse all that I write.

The Cause of God and Truth


Section 4—Ephesians 1:4.

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy, and without blame before him in love.

[3] Qui enim praesperasse potuerunt, id est, ante sperasse in Deum quam venisset, nisi Jadaei, quibus Christus praenuntiabatur ab initio? Qui ergo praenun tiabatur ille et praesperabatur, atque ideo hoc ad se, id est, ad Judaeos refert ut distinctionem faciat, conversus ad nationes; in quo et vos quum audissetis Sermonem veritatis, Evangelium in quo credidistis et signati estis Spiritu promissionis ejus Sancto.—Tertullian adv. Marcion, 1.5, c. 17, p. 607, 608; ed. Paris.
