To whom are these verses targeted? Elect or non-Elect? Why Are we required to repent if the "Holy Spirit only", regenerates us? The Calvinist position has oft been stated as being that we are not capable and that we have no part in our own salvation. Acts 3:19 states that one must repent and turn to God. How is that possible if one must be "regenerated" first? It has also been stated that All our sins are already forgiven by Jesus' atonement. Yet Jesus' apostles declare that we must pray that the Lord forgive our sins and schemes. This appears to be a contradiction. So who is the target audience for each of these scriptures?
