Monergist Reformer: Heinrich Bullinger


Heinrich Bullinger (1504–1575), successor to Zwingli:

image

“We, which condemn both Pelagius and Pelagians, do affirm both those things which they deny; to wit, that infants are born in original sin, and therefore that the sanctification of Christ is necessary unto them, without which they are not saved.”

“For they are wrong, that think those that are to be saved to life are predestinate of God for the merit’s sake, or good works, which God did foresee in them.”

“The second birth is wrought by the means of the Holy Ghost, which, being from heaven poured into our hearts, does bring us to the knowledge of ourselves, so that we may easily perceive, assuredly know, and sensibly feel, that in our flesh there is not life, no integrity, or righteousness at all; and so consequently, that no man is saved by his own strengths or merits.”

“Faith is the mere gift of God because God alone of His power gives it to His elect according to measure; and that when, to whom, and how much He will; and that by His Holy Spirit.”

“The saints are chosen in Christ by God unto a sure end.”

—cited in Steven J. Lawson, Pillars of Grace (Reformation Trust, 2011), 491–494.
