Scripture closes with the invitation from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ: Revelation 22:16, 17, KJV 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Just who is included in the whosoever will is a question that has plagued and divided Evangelical Christianity for several hundred years. Why? Why do some people respond to the Gospel while others reject it outright. Are some people inately superior to others morally? Scripture clearly tells us: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; [Romans 3: 23] Furthermore, we read in the Gospel of John And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. [John 5:40, KJV] If this passage is taken literally we are faced with the question, not who will be saved, but who can be saved? So we have two statements that are apparently in conflict: 1. whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 2. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. However, since Scripture tells us [1 Corinthians 14:33] For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. there can be no conflict between these two statements. We must simply learn what God is teaching us.
