Who Chooses Who?

“Jesus told His disciples, “Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you…”(John 15:16). This is a subjective statement, and not an objective one. This becomes a matter of doctrine. Do you follow the “people choosing God” notion, or do you surrender to the scriptural “people chosen of God” doctrine? Your answer will determine whether you think the word “whosoever” applies to anyone who confesses Christ (the people choosing God notion), or whether you embrace the revealed, “people chosen of God doctrine.” A. Kennedy.

So when one reads a verse that says Whosoever, Everyone or All one must keep in mind that the scripture teaches that ultimately God is the one who chooses. The context of scripture is exclusive, not inclusive.

John 6:44 "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day."
