Hello all, I have enjoyed reading posts so far. This is a question I have had for some time regarding reformed theology and was hoping someone might be able to help me here. I understand we have a limited capability to understand God and His plan, but I also know the He tells us to study and I have found no qualification of that. In other words, there is no reason not to speculate based on what we DO know. For instance, we know certain of God's character traits, i.e.- God is Love, God hates sin, God is a vengeful God, God is fair and just, etc. Based on the known traits, what do reformed folks believe is the criteria for God's choosing who He will save? Thanks much in advance!
