Consider: 1. Who takes the initiative in working our salvation? 2. How are we brought to faith? Does the Lord use people as His instruments to accomplish His purpose? 3. Who determines where the gospel will be preached? Will everyone hear it before Christ returns? 4. What is true and living faith? 5. Define the terms 'predestination' and 'election.' (www.bible.crosswalk.com) 6. Are we free to live the way we want? Can we choose? Keeping in mind we are dead in our sin. 7. Why do some accept God and others do not if we as people are all equal in our sin? The way I see it... "I know not how the spirit moves, convincing men of sin, revealing Jesus through the Word, creating faith in him."
