Presumption and the Elect

Wisdom of the Ages

“The prophet who foresees that “He shall deliver the needy, when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper” (Psalm 72:12); no less declares that He “loveth righteousness and hateth iniquity” (Psalm 45:5, 7; Heb. 1:9), and that “He cometh to judge the world with equity and the people with His truth” (Psalm 96:13). Some of His elect may think, that, because they are elect, He will not judge them. But because He is the Truth, He must judge all wrong, and judge it even more in those who know and are near Him, than in those who know Him not. For He reveals Him who said of old, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore will I punish you for your iniquities” (Amos 3:2)
