Total Depravity - Mankind is born guilty and with a nature of sin. When faced with God's revelation of himself through the creation or his special revelation through his Word and man rebels against it his thoughts become futile and his heart becomes calloused. God though patient with his creation will eventually "give them over" to the lusts of their flesh. Notice: I didn't say they were born totally depraved, but that they become totally depraved after denying and rebelling from the clearly seen and understood revelation of God. They become hardened, but they are not born hardened as the typical Calvinists teaches. Unconditional Election- God unconditionally elected a remnant Jews (i.e. the apostles), who deserved to be hardened right along with the rest of them, to carry out the plan of redemption by proclaiming a righteousness that comes to all mankind through faith. God elected to use the nation of Israel and individual Isrealites to bring redemption to the world. God also elected to grant repentance to the Gentiles by sending these Jewish messengers to them to preach the message of reconciliation and through faith and repentance. Limited/Particular Atonement - Christ's atonement, though offered to the whole world, is only applied particularly to those who have faith in Christ. Irresistible Grace - or better stated "Effectual call". God called his apostles effectually to accomplish a divine purpose in redemption history. They are to preach the gospel to every creature by the power of the Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit is resisted (Acts 7:51) and men are often unwilling despite God's longing to gather them together with him (Matt. 23:37). But, when men refused their message they were instructed to dust their feet and move on in order to proclaim the gospel to "every creature." Perseverance of the Saints - Those who perservere to the end will be saved. Those who don't won't.
