"Chance" - what does that mean to a Christian?

I think chance, in context, is equivalent to God's permissive will - that is - for the reprobate, since they are not saved, dwell within a continuum that God allows them to exist in a state of circumstantial indeterminism - that is - except for their final dispensation or to the degree that they are used as components for the sanctification of the elect.

The redeemed, however, exist within a continuum of full circumstantial predeterminism - all things work together for the ultimate good of the elect.

Nothing is purposeless for the elect.
