My new topic involves a discussion regarding salvation for the hostile individual. Can and does God move in the hearts of those who are hostile to Him, and if so, can we name biblical precedent? Also, what of ministries to those hostile to the gospel? Should we proceed, even though they avow a hatred or inability to "choose Christ"? And, will our efforts be successful or not? As a word of background, I have now added biblical recovery counseling for individuals who were ritualistically abused to my ministry, and in so doing, I am often (like 100% of the time) confronted by an individual hostile to God, God's Word, God's people, and even in most cases, acts of kindness. How does God work in this situation? Especially those of you enamored by "choice." I'd like to hear your take on this.
