Supralapsarianism

Supralapsarianism is an issue within Reformed Theology (Calvinism) dealing with what may have happened in God's mind regarding the logical order of his considering whom to elect into salvation before the foundation of the world. The word means "before the fall." This position holds that God first decided that he would save some people and then second that he would allow sin into the world. By contrast, the infralapsarian ("after the fall") position is the reverse in that it holds that God first decided he would allow sin into the world and second that he would then save people from it.
