Christians I have a question for you
The Bible teaches that God chooses certain people to be saved.
Ephesians 1:4 "For he chose us in him before the creation of the world."
Ok, before the creation of the world God chose who would be saved. Now, if he chose who would be saved that means no one has a say so in it, because he makes the decision.
That would mean that it's not our fault if we are not saved, correct? There's no other way around it.
Here's is a verse that contradicts God's sovereignty over people being saved or not.
Mathew 23:37 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing."
Here, Jesus is saying that he has longed to gather the people but they were not willing. In this verse, it is their fault they are not saved.
In Ephesians it is God's fault.
This is a contradiction as I see it. Do you have anything to say?
