Zanchius on general mercy

"But it should be observed that the mercy of God, taken in its more large and indefinite sense, may be considered (1) as general and (2) as special. His general mercy is no other than what we commonly call His bounty, by which He is, more or less, providentially good to all mankind, both elect and non-elect" (Jerome Zanchius, Absolute Predestination).

Here is Zanchius asserting that God shows a general, providential "mercy" at the expense of His inviolable justice. Contrary to Zanchius, mercy (and grace) is found in Jesus Christ ALONE.
