The word purpose is commonly used and preferred to the word decree when God's (etermination regarding man's relation to eternity is referred to. The word purpose owes its use to the fact that it is more comprehensive and expresses the idea of intelligent design, and therefore more clearly and wsith less of prejudice sets forth the true scope of the divine government. (See PREDESTINATION).
