Rick, why is it that one man is able to come to Christ and another is impotent? Since, on your view, all men are drawn, what is it that finally moves one man over the other?
Danny I think you've asked this question, and I've answered it, in every thread that we've got going.
But, I'll answer it again. All men are able to come to Christ. Christ's work has made that possible.
John 12:32 But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself."
Yes, Danny. I believe God draws all men. If you're asking why some choose to accept the gospel, while others don't? It's because I don't believe God's grace is irresistible.
How does the man receive the Spirit? How does one man get there and the other doesn’t? Is it something in the other guy's genetic makeup that is stopping him from coming to the Gospel?
Danny, you know I believe man receives the indwelling Holy Spirit, when he believes on Christ. Danny, why does fat ugly Mathilda's husband love her, when others find her repulsive? Someone cannot make someone love someone else. It has to be a choice, or it's not really love. But, if you've listened to me before, this is nothing new.
We were chosen in accordance with His will, bro. Is it a half-will of God that goes out to all men?
Rick, if Christ has atoned for the sins of all men everywhere, why aren’t the unbelievers’ unbelief forgiven them? Why would God, who so loved them that He sent His Son as a propitiation for their sins, why would He not forgive their poor ignorance and give them all the treasures of the elect?
He has given them everything He has promised. All they have to do is believe on Christ. It's all there right in front of them.
John 3:16 is so simply beautiful.
