Rolland McCune is a former professor at Central Baptist Theological Seminary and president of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary.

The most primitive basis of divine election must be in God Himself and not man. It is in His sovereign good pleasure as understood in light of His grace and love. There is nothing meritorious in man, in what he is, does or would/could do that induces God to act savingly in his behalf. Without His sovereign, unilateral electing love no one could be saved.
