Really? Then that means that people were damned before they had a choice? Then how fair is it? If one never had a choice to begin with...how can one
be punished for it - or even chastised for it - later?
Christianity isn't fair.
12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13,children born not of natural
descent,[c] nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
who are these people can you choose to be one of them? Lets see
now this is in the O.T but it exacly the same in the N.T
euteronomy 7:6 For you are a people (those who received him) holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples
on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.
Tis not about us it's about GOD
(N.T): Ephesians 1:4,5 According as he hath chosen us (GOD) in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before
him in love:
5'''''Having predestinated''''''' us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom '"thou hast given me"", be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given
me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
25Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
26But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30I and my Father are one.
