The following chart reveals the names which refer to reprobation in the Bible:

Scriptural Names For Reprobation:

1. Hated

As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

- Romans 9:13

2. Appointed to wrath

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.

- I Thessalonians 5:9

3. Appointed to disobedience

And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

- I Peter 2:8

4. Fitted to destruction

What if God, willing to show His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction.

- Romans 9:22

5. Ordained to condemnation

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

- Jude: 4

God's predestination clearly teaches that:

    1. God deserves all the credit and praise for each sinner who is saved. God sovereignly and graciously elected to save this totally lost and unworthy sinner.

    2. Man deserves all the blame and guilt whenever a sinner remains lost. God sovereignly decreed to leave this person in the sin he chose, and to justly punish him for it.

How are these two truths clearly explained in the following two articles from the Canons of Dordt on the following page?

Some people only believe and teach that "God is love." Is this the entire truth? Why is it deceiving and dangerous not to teach the whole truth regarding God and His dealings with sinful man?

How are God's gracious election and just reprobation connected to man's total depravity?
