I know this one must have been done a time or two , but here goes again . In John 6:44 Jesus said : No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him , and I will raise him up at the last day . The Lord had already said in verse 37 that all that the Father gives Me will come to Me ... And verse 65 deals with the same . Isn't verse 44 rather clear ? Draws . The Greek word is elkw . It's found in other verses such as John 18:10 : Then Simon Peter , having a sword , drew it ... John 21:11 : Simon Peter went up and dragged up and dragged the net ... Acts 21:30 : ... and dragged him out of the temple ... Acts 16:19 : ... they seized Paul and silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities . James 2:6 : Don't the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts ? Kittel's Dictionary of the New Testament defines elkw as to " draw by an irrestible force ." There is no wooing going on . I seem to remember R.C. Sproul talking about this in one of his books . In one of his classes with his mentor John Gerstner this very thing came up . God's drawing is never partial , it is complete .
