Psalm 22:9: "Yet You brought me out of the womb; You made me trust in You even at my mother's breast."
Elect infants, dying in infancy, are regenerated, and saved by Christ, through the Spirit, who works when, and where, and how He pleases: so also are all other elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word.
I've asked the same question many times. If God knows a person is elect from before the foundation of the world, then he was God's before he was born. At what point can he be called a believer? I don't know.Does this mean that someone can be saved without knowledge of right doctrine then? What? Never heard of the Trinity, no problem?
You either believe the WCF section that Meg posted or you don't. My 11 year old has Down's Syndrome, and there's no way he can understand the Trinity. He can't even count to 10. How much do you want him to believe before Christ can love him?Does this mean that someone can be saved without knowledge of right doctrine then?
