Reprobation: The Antithesis of Election

Everything in the Bible is "profitable" for the Christian, and is worth learning and applying, II Tim. 3:16-17. To the extent that the Christian is ignorant of any aspect of revealed truth, to that extent he is deficient and unbalanced. Nothing in the Bible is harmful unless it is twisted and abused, II Pet. 3: 16. The entrance of "the whole counsel of God" into the mind and heart brings light and understanding into the life, Psa. 119:l3O; Acts 20:27. John Calvin wrote: "The Scripture is the school of the Holy Spirit, in which, as nothing useful or necessary to be known is omitted, so nothing is taught which it is not beneficial to know."
