Seek and you will find, but when God does not want to reveal himself, he will never be found. You can't find anything when you don't know what to look for, don't inflict yourself with the agony of doing so. Only when God wants you to, when He wants you to seek, when He makes you seek, only then you are able to find Him.

Faith is not by choice, faith is given by God.

As long as we don't receive faith from God, we will never have any.

Nothing you do can make you a chosen one.

Are you formally a Calvinist, or have you come to that viewpoint independently?
(I'm an Arminian, myself. I think the Calvinists over-simplify.)

I agree with you, like Langdon said in Angels and Demons "I have not been blessed with faith" or something like that.

"Sovereignty of God" is a very Calvinist phrase. It's where their legalism shows through.
There is Biblical support for both "God's decision" and "human decision". I think the real mystery of God is that both are true at the same time.

Oh, you have to be a chosen one to get it. Now it all makes sense. I was just thinking all of it was imaginary. My bad.

The idea that God is choosing people would mean that there are others out there that are somehow un-chosen…

And If God is just choosing people, then there would be no need for God to teach us anything, or even try get us to change our ways and start walking a righteous path…

God wants people to change their heart and become good people but God can’t force or make people change that way because that’s something which must take place within that individual. It can’t be forced or faked; it must happen via a persons own freewill choice…

Jesus says, he stands at the door…all we have to do is knock...We knock by seeking the truth…Gods truth...When God sees us seeking the truth, he comes in and meets us half way…This is what the parable of the Prodigal son is all about.

It is people who choose to follow God…there are NO chosen ones…IMO
