Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
FIRST "he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost"
SECOND "That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."
The effectual grace of God IS IN THE BELIEVER - **Then** they are justified.
3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. 4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
"but believeth on him" = A believer is identified
"that justifieth the ungodly" God justifies the elect. Prior to this they are unregenerate.
Any way you put it JD It is rediculous that as you imply God would Justify a person unregenerated.
And please do not consider these events as vastly different in time.
 "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, *NEITHER COMETH* to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But *HE THAT DOETH TRUTH COMETH* to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are WROUGHT in God."
As we are given ability to receive the Truth, we can observe here also that the two opposing groups of "Elect" and "Reprobate" are further identified.
1] "Neither cometh" - This group cannot come to salvation as the verse confirms.
2] "He that doeth truth cometh" - This group are the Elect of God, whose deeds are wrought in God.
God's call is effectual
Rom 8:30 "Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified."
Eph 2:8 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: *IT* *IS* *THE* *GIFT* *OF* *GOD*  NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast."
NOT OF WORKS. NO HUMAN INPUT.
Only the Arminians believe in salvation by works. (and their RCC cousins)
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." = Q. Who is qualified to believe.? = Answer "universalism" NO.!
 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. =Q. Is all the "world" condemned.? - No.! =Q. Is all the world saved.? No.!
So, Who is saved. - Who is condemned.
1]  "He that believeth on him is not condemned" 2] "but he that believeth not is condemned *ALREADY*, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Again we find the question - Who can or can't. Here is the crux of the matter. Viz Who or what makes the difference. - God, or man dead in sin and at enmity with God.? Who happens to be "ALREADY" condemned. The condemned don't have to *DO* anything they are the condemned.
It is not about personal human choice/decision - Because the reprobate CANT make a decision they are ALREADY condemned.
Whereas the Believer, - only by the grace of God, - Can and Does.
The term "world" in Scripture only means universalism to the Arminians, to support their aspirations to salvation by human effort/salvation by works, just as their brothers in heresy the Popish crowd like to believe.
As per usual it is bad exegesis, bad exposition and doesn't even agree with the Bible Lexicons.
Yamil, JD and the Arminian club must desperately seek the alternatives to Biblical Doctrine, to assert their humanistic philosophies.
As someone (Alder.???) pointed out below in the debate, - The Bible is specifically addressed to the Elect. Hence the Term "world" in terms of salvation, addresses those who will be saved. And as common sense reveals that is NOT everybody.
"Open Theism The essential question of Open Theism is, ‚ÄúDoes God know the future?‚ÄĚ. The overarching thesis of Open Theism is this... God gave human beings a true free will. If God knows the future, human beings cannot truly be free. Therefore, God cannot know the future."
Stone the flamin crows.!! - Just look where your heresy is leading to, you Arminians.
You are planting the seed of Liberalism and Darkness. All this idiotic FreeWillicker nonsense is killing the authority of Scripture; - Not to mention the correct exegesis of it.
JD, Yamil et al get back to the drawing board and invent some other religious theories. The hypotheses which you are currently formulating are fallacies of doom.
It's just that all the Saved/Elect speak in terms of the Doctrines of Grace.
There is no academic value to salvation.
But the Elect have the divine influence of the Holy Spirit in them. Theirs is the fruit of the Spirit.
The True Body of Christ - "THE" Church - flock together as one likeminded with Christ.
Romans 15:4 "For whatsoever things were ***written aforetime*** were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 5. Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be LIKEMINDED one toward another according to Christ Jesus: 6. That ye may with ONE MIND and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ"
