Your God doesn't offer a choice whether to believe in him or not?
(Tosses Bible over shoulder, "I know it's not in there", picks up copy of Baptist doctrine 101 add ons.)
What pages are we reading from in your doctrine. I know we're probably not reading the Bible.
Let me guess, Electivism, chapter eight, the section on predestination.
No, I do not view this stuff as actually Biblical at all.
Jeremiah 1:5Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother’s breast.
Matthew 24:22“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Matthew 24:24If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
John 6:44For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
Romans 8:28-30“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
Ephesians 1:4-7And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
Ephesians 1:11-12For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
