    I understand your question, I'm certain others do as well, but no pejorative attitude here.

    God determined those who come to Christ, then to save them. So the latter part of your question reflects the truth in the best way.

    - Peace

    God choses us for Salvation. The only act of man is to submit to God

    So, you are asking Did God determine to save Those Who Come To Christ or
    Did God Determine To save Those who come to Christ?

    The only difference is the capitalization of your words.

    Did Jesus fan determine to write his one millionth post(12 topic) or did Jesus fan determine to write his one millionth post?

    Did I decide to buy and ipad2 or did I decide to buy an ipad 2?

    The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance

    Don't you wondered what kind of people would be drawn to those who were convinced God didn't love the world as those who convinced it is everyone that He sent His Son?

    Did God hate Esau and loved Jacob that He denied one salvation or because salvation is comming to the world through the one He loved?

    Acts 4:12
    Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

    Not really, as there is 2 distinct differences here!

    Did God chose to save those after they placed faith in Christ, or did He chose them to get saved before they placed faith in Christ?
