In Ephes. Chp5 v 25-27 it says Christ died layed down His life for The Church...not for all men and women...allso says in the Word He shed His blood for many, again not all ...when word all is used its means all nations now not just Jews if you look at context..In John Chp 17v9 ...etc .. Christ prayer is for the elect I pray not for the world He says but fot those you have given me.. its claer ..but for my people..allso he was slain before the world began we are told, which means God knew who Christ would die for and pay sins price for...if it was for all then no man derserves Hell Christ payed the price..for all!!..if it was down to man to decide if he did or not then its mans Salvation not Gods and would fail and did fail if Christ died for all, as not all believe..it wuold mean Christ died for a soul and they are lost? that wuold maen God failed Christ failed..no victory here .Thats a mans salvation not Gods His plans are sure and true Rom chp 8 he knew the elect chose them in Christ before the world began .in our place condemned he stood..our substitute...Isia.Chp 53 talks of One person taking the sinners place in a personal way He was briused for Our sins by His stripes we are healed..etc no doubt left here that the person really is saved by Christ not just given a chance to be saved..that way wuold leave it up to man who chose the wrong way in Adam when he was made good how much more now would he chose wrong being dead in sin and a rebell fully in the nature of Adams sin..No it was God who gave His Son for His poeple sins...he shall save His poeple from there sins says Bible..all those God would quiken by His Grarce and save through the Cross....nothing left to chance ..to man ..what love God has knowing we wuold all reject HIm as we did in Adam..Jn chpt 3 regenarated us ..born again of His Spirit...saved by Grace alone not of anything good He sor in us rather in Love.He gave His son for Us Gal Chpt.1 v3-5..us being the church Paul wrote to all belivers he dd not say for all people..Lets not rob God of His Glory... Praise Him.
