[What if I choose not to choose?]
Well according to scripture you could be one of these people then ..
Rev 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
You will suffer not only in the flesh on this earth after recieving the mark but also for all eternity after that even ..........
Notice when vexed with fleshly pain and emotional turmoil on this earth ..they believed in God enough to cuss him out for the sores etc .....so I
suppose at some point before that time they were convinced that there was a God but chose not to believe there was a consequence to not believing
Scripture also says that at some point it is too late to change your mind anyway ......
Rev 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be
righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
And any loving kind thing he did will be remembered no more (so dont think your works will save you alone because they will not ) ..Even Christians
works wont save them ...neither will the works of the unbelievers save them .....................
Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise
Mat 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even
that he hath
Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove
thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
There are plenty of scriptures pertaining to what happens to the person who chooses not to choose anything ......and the lukewarmers (which I consider
nonbelievers as lukewarmers too)
They will be TURNED OVER TO THE FLESH ..and will be destroyed ......not only in flesh but for eternity ............
Jud 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God
into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto
the judgment of the great day.
Some may change their minds during the trib ...but they will still suffer in the flesh .(these may be the ones who have to die for him) .........
1Cr 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
