how many well intentioned people study the bible and pray often and write passionate books and they even believe they have made a connection to God, yet their doctrine is opposed to the gospel. why is it that a person may have heart felt seeking of God and yet they are lost and may never find God. how can man trust his own heart? it is a great concern to me that i was not able to trust in my own feelings and it is God that gives a person ability to know the truth, it is not wooed upon them other wise in all fairness everyone would have the same opportunity to resist the wooing of the power of the gospel. Yet the gospel does not reach every ear, and in the arminian view it is the obedience of missionary's that will provide a chance for those to be saved. God in His power could have made the gospel reach every ear correct? The world is guilty and it is up to Gods mercy to save who He will, God can enlighten anyone He wants to the truth or He can let them stay in their own condition and get justice in the end. This is a hard pill to swallow, and i see why arminians look for a way out.
