We have now to consider the effect of grace; (1) the justification of the ungodly, which is the effect of operating grace; and (2) merit, which is the effect of cooperating grace. Under the first head there are ten points of inquiry:

A[1] What is the justification of the ungodly?

A[2] Whether grace is required for it?

A[3] Whether any movement of the free-will is required?

A[4] Whether a movement of faith is required?

A[5] Whether a movement of the free-will against sin is required?

A[6] Whether the remission of sins is to be reckoned with the foregoing?

A[7] Whether the justification of the ungodly is a work of time or is sudden?

A[8] Of the natural order of the things concurring to justification;

A[9] Whether the justification of the ungodly is God's greatest work?

A[10] Whether the justification of the ungodly is miraculous?
