First, this is a serious discussion that I would like to have with those who do not question the integrity of Scripture. Therefore, I am starting this in this forum and not a different one. If you don't like this, please don't worry about posting. John 10:26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. This is what Jesus said to the pharisees. Most people today reverse what Jesus said. Most people want to believe that Jesus said, "you are not my sheep BECAUSE you don't believe." Christ did not say that though. Christ actually said that their lack of belief is because of the fact that God did not call them. Now, this specifically destroys the idea that God "calls" everyone equally. Am I reading too much into this passage or do you see it the same way?
