WHAT DOES INFRALAPSARIAN MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Logical order of God's decrees
The logical order of God's decrees in Calvinist theology is the study of the logical order of the decree to ordain or allow the fall of man and reprobation in relation to his decree to elect and save sinners. Several opposing positions have been proposed, all of which have names with the Latin root lapsus meaning fall. Supralapsarianism is the view that God's decrees of election and reprobation logically preceded the decree of the fall while infralapsarianism asserts that God's decrees of election and reprobation logically succeeded the decree of the fall. The words can also be used in connection with other topics, e.g. supra- and infralapsarian christology. Many Calvinists reject both lapsarian views for various reasons. Herman Bavinck rejected both because he sees the entire system of God's plan of salvation as organic with each part mutually dependent and determinative, rather than some parts "causing" others. Other Calvinists reject the lapsarian views because they perceive any particular ordering of the decrees as unnecessary and presumptive speculation.
