(770 words)

Author(s): Ohst, Martin
In Anknüpfung an Gedanken des Apostels Paulus hatte der Kirchenvater Augustinus um 400 seine Erwählungs- und Gnadenlehre ausgearbeitet: Gott qualifiziere die von ihm vor aller Zeit aus der verlorenen Sündenmenschheit Erwählten für das ewige Heil, indem er ihnen durch die kirchl.

Kenntnisse präziser wurden, zeigte sich immer deutlicher, wie fließend di…
