Paul said, "19 Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings." -1 Cor. 9 Question: If Paul believed that the only MEANS that actually saves is the "effectual call" of God, why would he make this statement? What would his becoming a slave, a Jew, or weak accomplish in saving some if indeed the effectual work of regeneration is all that is needed? Couldn't Paul be whoever he wanted to be and just proclaim the truth and let the chips fall where they may? What does his "becoming all things to all men" accomplish?
