first i want to tread carefully with this issue, i am somewhat unsettled with this issue. but if Christ died for all sin that would include unbelief and while we were still in unbelief Christ died for those who he foreknew (His elect) my question maynot be answerable, if Christ died for everyone's unbelief then that would insure universal salvation would it not? it is apparent that those who believe do not have this special virtue to believe on any merit of their own unless God gives it correct? if anyone believes that they heard the gospel and according to the wooing of the Holy Spirit choose of their own free will and not resisted as some others would, then they were very spiritually smart while the stubbornness of others were not so smart, does any one believe this? my belief is that God draws His elect and drawing is not wooing. otherwise the word woo would be used instead of draw. i do believe that Christ died so everyone is invited to come, yet only those who God draws will hear the calling. i know it is a contradiction but i believe it.
