There seem to be several verses that indicate that salvation is conditional but are explained to the contrary by Calvinists. An example of a passage that, at first read, would promote a 'conditional' idea of salvation: As I understand it, calvinists explain that the words 'world' and "whoever" are different from what they seem, such that those that "have eternal life" do not have it on the condition that they "believe in him", otherwise it would be conditional. In a previous thread, a statement was made regarding salvation being unconditional. What I gather from the statement is this: Salvation is given without condition. Jesus will save whomever the Father wills saved. Are there any verses indicating that salvation is not conditional?
