I have been able to find in Scripture that the Jews are God's chosen Race. I have been able to find in Scripture that the Apostles are God's Elect gift to Jesus, God's Son. I have been able to ascertain that the reputed authors of the Old Testament books are God's chosen people, thus they are "of the elect" and these include the major and minor prophets, the priests and kings-good and bad. I have been able to ascertain that God has elected nations to punish or discipline Israel. If all the elect will be saved, does that include all the people of these nations? I have been able to ascertain that most all of the Hero's and heroens of the Old Testament bible stories are the elect of God, having been "placed" by God's election into the History of Israel. What I don't find in scripture is the definition of "the elect" that says that "the elect" are saved without regard to their personal choice and faith. Or that "the elect" cannot resist God. Finally I do not find in scripture that there is an "unalterable book of names" written before the foundation of the world. Yes, I know about the "book of life" from before the foundation of the world, but that reference does not say or even imply that the list is completed for all of eternity, and it does not even say that it is "the names of the elect", but rather a "book of life" which could be interpreted as God's plan for his creation. So, who are "the elect" where does it specify that only those names written before the foundation of the world are "the eternal elect"? Where does it say that "the elect" cannot resist God? Please post the scriptures that prove your point! then include your own point as to why that scripture means what you say it does!
