23. Did God leave all mankind to perish in the estate of sin and misery?
God—having out of His mere good pleasure, from all eternity, elected some to everlasting life (Eph 1:4-5)—did enter into a Covenant of Grace, to deliver them out of the estate of sin and misery, and to bring them into an estate of salvation by a Redeemer (Rom 3:20-22; Gal 3:21-22)
