Is the doctrine of election really that important?

“Although this may be said to be the turning point between these great systems, which have divided the Church in all ages, yet that point of necessity involves all the other mattes of difference; namely, the nature of original sin; the motive of God in providing redemption; the nature and design of the work of Christ; and the nature of divine grace, or the work of the Holy Spirit. Thus, in a great measure, the whole system of theology, and of necessity, the character of our religion, depend upon the view taken of this particular question. It is, therefore, a question of the highest practical importance, and not a matter of idle speculation.”
