Supralapsarianism v Infralapsarianism

Supralapsarianism  

Infralapsarianism

 

Decree of election of Christ and church precedes decree concerning the creation and the fall Decree of creation and fall first then election and reprobation including election of Christ and church.

 

It seems clear to me this is an arbitrary and unnecessary distinction because all the decrees of God are eternal and therefore have no order attached. In other words God’s purpose to glorify his name is realised in the election of His Son and the church in him while simultaneously there is reprobation. This counsel is then worked out through everything that takes place in heaven and earth namely the creation, fall and the work of salvation and damnation in time and at the last judgment.
