Q. 20. Did God leave all mankind to perish in the state of sin and misery?

A. 20. God, solely out of his love and mercy, from all eternity elected some to everlasting life, and entered into a covenant of grace to deliver them out of the state of sin and misery, and to bring them into a state of salvation by a Redeemer.


Q. 21. Who is the Redeemer of God’s elect?

A. 21. The only Redeemer of God’s elect is the Lord Jesus Christ, who, being the eternal Son of God became man, and so was and continues to be God and man, in two distinct natures and one person forever.


Q. 22. How did Christ, the Son of God, become man?

A. 22. Christ, the Son of God, became man by taking to himself a body and a soul like ours, being conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary, and born of her, yet without sin.
