Alva was by now so widely hated that he was recalled by Philip II. The modern mind believed that the nation existed for the individual, for the guardianship and education of every man. At a meeting of the Consistory of the Protestant Reformed Dutch Church of Leeds and Kiskatom, on Apr. 9, 1833, it was �Resolved that Elders Schuneman and Van Deursen be a committee to take charge of the old church lot and to make such disposition of it as they many think proper.� In the minutes dated Nov. 1833, the following appears: �The committee appointed to dispose of the old church lot (see minutes of Apl. 9th, 1833) reported that they have sold said lot to Mr.

Elsewhere, Calvin suggested that having “knowledge of [God’s] name” and reflecting the process of sanctification are both indicators of election (189). Are all of these mere potentialities as a result of the death of Christ, or were they intrinsically involved in His vicarious suffering as His crowning act of obedience and the fountain of all other spiritual blessings?

Justification by grace and faith, not by works--sometimes led to belief in predestination (Calvin). The following verses clearly present this Biblical paradox of man's accountably and God's supremacy, which is based on His foreknowledge: "The Son of man goeth as it is written of him (written in time and according to God's foreknowledge): but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born" (man's personal accountability) (Matt. 26:24).
