No, I do not know the list of men that God elected before the dawn of time. It is not for anyone to know. In fact, among the unregenerate, it is not for us to judge who is elect and who is reprobate. Thus, I never say that a certain person is in hell or is going to hell. All Christians are called to do is to judge unregenerate vs. regenerate. Among the unregenerate, there are some of God's elect. I don't know if God saved Gordon Clark before Clark died; thus, I do not know if Clark is in heaven. What I do know is that Clark was unregenerate when he made those statements. We judge alive unregenerate people to be currently unregenerate based on their confession, but we never say that they will for sure end up in hell. We do not know their final destiny.

To God alone be the glory,
