Words That Tell Us About God and the Church
Divine: That is, God. For example, to say Jesus is divine or to speak of His divinity is to say that He is God.
Doctrine: The beliefs that the Bible teaches and we should believe. These are truths about God, the world in which we live, and ourselves. These are the basic facts of life we can live by and die with.
Election: The word means “to choose.” We became Christians because God took the initiative to save us, not because we took the initiative to seek God. Election is His eternal plan to save sinners.
