(2) According to the teaching of Scripture in general and Paul in particular, faith is included in, or associated with, , and is in this very passage made the consequence of foreknowledge and predestination. It cannot be both the condition of predestination and the consequence of it. This consideration is confirmed by verse 28: "All things work together for good to them that love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose." If called according to his purpose, the purpose is antecedent to the calling, and if faith is embodied in or associated with calling, the purpose itself cannot be conditioned upon faith.
