No Easy Solution to the Mystery of Election

From According to Plan by Graeme Goldsworthy:

Election is a principle that is developed throughout the biblical history, and we should be careful not to misunderstand it or try to reshape it by human logic into a more acceptable doctrine. We cannot solve this mystery by resorting to easy solutions such as suggesting that God foresees the faith of those whom he subsequently, and on that basis, elects. Nor may we erect false, if apparently logical, objections to the doctrine such as saying that election based on God’s free grace reduces us to robots or puppets on a string with no wills or power to make choices.
