Mima: I take the answer to be a direct NO, but the other question has been a problem to be. We are told that only some are chosen, and I always wonder why and how this choosing occurs

NO He will not refuse..Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

God wants truth in the inward parts, so the person asking Jesus for salvation must ask him in truth and sincerity. God is faithful and just, and he expects the samething from us: so when we covenant with him, we are obligated to keep our end of the covenant, else we be spued out of his mouth as an unholy thing. Like getting married is a serious life-changing choice, so too when a person surrenders their whole self up to Jesus Christ it is a serious life-changing choice. He will make us a new life and make all things new, but we must continue daily with him and be obedient to his word.

Anyone can say that. It does not mean that they are actually being chosen to be saved by His Powerful Blood. It is God who comes to the believer. He draws you to His Son for forgiveness of all sins.

Right, No salvation for Many. The Man-made trin - relig - org's churches beginning with the rcc have their own salvation plans that is NOT of God.
Scriptures for the Man - made trin - relig - org's churches Prov,14 v 12, Matt.15 v 9 & v 14, Matt.23 v 24, 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15, Rev.17 v's 4 - 6.

Phil ... "Some people are simply created retrobate to serve some purpose in the devine plain, they will never have salvation and were never ment to have salvation"
Yes ... just players on a board, creasted to give God pleasure as He casts them down to heaven, and pleasure to the "saved" as they witness their destruction.
That's one of the pleasures in medieival Christianity ... those in Heaven drooling over the pain of the damned

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE. 2pe 3:9 Hope this answers your question. ALL that come to Jesus truly seeking him will be saved.
---evangelistjerry on 2/1/08

Phil--Where do you get THAT idea from? A person must first repent and ask for forgiveness. God will forgive ANYONE'S sin! It is the Holy Spirit that leads ANYONE into all truth IF they truely seek the truth. EVERYONE as been given a choice. Yes, God knows what your choice will be, but that does not do away with having a real choice!
---Dr._Rich on 2/1/08

Only God takes His sheep with Him. No one else can take His sheep. No true Christian can lose what has been promised to him. Salvation is a promised gift and comes after a person is born again of the Spirit. No where does Scripture say that God takes back His promise because suddenly He saw something bad in you. Not true at all. God knows everything about you from birth to death. Nothing is outside of His knowledge. God doesn't make mistakes and changes His mind.
---Mark_V. on 2/1/08

Only God's preordained elect ever have salvation. Some people are simply created retrobate to serve some purpose in the devine plain; they will never have salvation and were never ment to have salvation.
---Phil_the_Elder on 1/27/08

As long as it is real and not for selfish gain. After one is saved, we are called to a life of obedience and holiness with repentance. If we permanently turn back to the world, we are again lost. Some who are in positions of authority become greedy and love money so lose thier salvation through idolatry. In addition thier judgement will be harsh for poor handling of the sheep. Some take the sheep to hell with them.

Unless they kept doing this in the past and kept on and on, and so forth, after a while, Jesus will turn them over to a rebrobate mind. But if they aren't turned over, they must be convicted of their sins first, then they can ask Jesus to come into their heart.
---Rebecca_D on 5/17/07

The Holy Ghost must draw a person first, Jesus said. Some want God on their own terms, and not His terms, then go through the motions, but It wasn't the Holy Ghost who drew them. Some people are drawn by themselves. When God draws on a person, He leads them into His Truth. It is our responsibility to Abide&Continue in His Truth-Word. --Mrs. Morgan

2. If God calls we should repent and accept then He will not turn us away, even if it's on our deathbed.
---M.P. on 7/24/06

Phil the Elder obviously thinks that God deliberately knit some people together in their mother's womb so that the devil could just have them - no opportunity for them to be saved EVER. Bruce's contribution Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: is different I believe. This refers to people having the opportunity (He called but they refused). I don't accept what Phil says.
---M.P. on 7/24/06

I believe what the Bible says, i.e., one must first repent of their sins. Then, & only then can they be saved when they ask the Lord Jesus into their heart.

Phil... Your statement is biblically incorrect. God certainly knows everyones eternal end destination (He's Omniscient, All-Knowing). He allows us to "choose" our destiny (ultimately in Heaven or Hell). God does not create some to be saved & others to be damned . You can't support that idea from Scripture.

I beleive the word is 'reprobate', meaning 'already damned'. The notion is the source of much contention. In every religion that claims exclusivity of god's blessing/reward/salvation, there have arisen sects and beliefs around ideas of 'predestination' (the Calvinists, e.g.). Of course, this is unprovable (in this life), thus believers in predest. seek some 'outward sign' that they are blessed/saved (wealth, e.g.)

There can come a time that people may call on God and find no help from Him.

Proverbs 1:22-33, "How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
---Bruce5656 on 7/22/06

But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
---Bruce5656 on 7/22/06

For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."

No, never has, never will. It is the Father that draws us to salvation. He has given us the words of confession and softens our heart by His grace to confess Jesus as Lord and granted us the Faith to know that He has raised Him from the dead. (Jn. 7:37-38) "If ANY man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth (relies on, depends on & trust in) me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." Believe that.

Jesus never refuses anyone who comes to Him.
---Helen_5378 on 7/22/06

No ... He will not refuse any.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/22/06

The answer is NO.any one no matter how sinful if they are contrite ,Seek forgiveness.Jesus will always accept them as he said "I came to save sinners" & also "come to me ALL who are laboured & burdened & I will refresh you"

The Word says that you must believe with your heart and confess with your mouth, then you shall be saved. Christ does not reject or refuse anyone, but many reject and refuse Christ.
---Debbie on 7/21/06

God has not predestined some to be saved and some to be lost. The Word says "whosoever will." God has predestined a "new creation" life in those who are part of the "whosoever will." The word says that He does not want any to perish, but all to come to the knowledge of Him. Jesus will come and dwell in anyone who asks Him sincerely from the heart and not just the mouth.
---Debbie on 7/21/06

No! Read John 3:16. It's quite simple. Salvation is a choice we make.
