My question is on predestination, or the idea that there are some who God chooses and others He does not choose. I recently read some testimonies that included the statement that God offers the free gift of salvation to everyone, but I wondered if that is true? And what this means for evangelism - does this mean that for some people no matter how much you can try and evangelize and pray, if they are not one chosen by God then they will never come to Him. But since we will never know who God has chosen or predestined, we just do our best in evangelism and assume it is possible that they are chosen and that if so then hopefully they someday choose to accept Christ?
I did some research but still find this quite confusing and am unsure of the correct interpretation to references of the elect etc in the Bible such as this: John 6:44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.
Predestination is the biblical doctrine that God in His sovereignty chooses certain individuals to be saved; I understand that God saving me is out of His grace, I don’t deserve to be saved chosen forgiven, so I don’t have the right to be mad at God for not choosing certain people etc…
