Gottschalk (9th century monk)

” Therefore, what I believe most firmly, speak most confidently and confess most certainly and fruitfully, I also now most truly avow: that our omnipotent God, Creator and Preserver of all creatures, may now be considered as the gracious renewer and restorer of the elect only; He has never willed at any time to be the Saviour of any of the reprobate; nor Redeemer; nor crowner.” Gottschalk (9th century pre-Reformer).

‘ God elects whom he wills and reprobates whom he wills, and does not change his mind about it. Christ died for the elect, and no elect can ever be lost.’

from “Gottschalk, Servant of God” by Connie Meyer.
