This chapter discusses Maurice's view and standpoint on the principle of eternal life. Maurice believes that eternal life is fellowship with God. For him, to have eternal life means living in heaven now, for heaven is a state of being and not a place. Whereas in contemporary theology, Calvanists in particular believe in the salvation of the few and eternal damnation of the many, Maurician theology adheres to the thought of the eternal love of God wherein He constantly works for the redemption and salvation of His strayed subjects.
