John Diodati on John 3:16

November 12, 2008

Diodati:

V.16. The world] Namely, mankind in its generality, which being all subject to eternal perdition through sin, God out of his Sovereign and absolute good pleasure, has saved his elect from it; whom he has taken of all degrees, and out of all the Nations in the world indifferently, that the whole kind might not perish, but that in his number of elect, as in a new and holy community, it might subsist before God for ever. A benefit wich he has not imparted to the apostate Angels, not universally to all men.
