    For the ones (like me) who don't know what either term means, could you briefly define them.

    Thanks.

    infralapsarianism = The view that in the order of God's decrees, God decreed to permit the fall of humanity into sin before decreeing to save some of humanity.

    supralapsarianism = The view that the election and reprobation of individual persons occurs in the decrees of God as logically prior to the decrees from creation and the fall.

    I voted Supralapsarian.

    Though it sounds like a super white horse that is featured in a film as being saved during WWII. :)

    Actually, it is the only one that truly fits the balance of Scripture.

    Why didn't the pole include the other two "Am" views?

    Would supra be deemed heretical by those in the infra camp? I am not baiting anyone, just learning how each camp thinks concerning election/predestination.

    Heretical? Nah. Both sides beat each other up a bit, but generally we are in harmony.
