OUR SALVATION IS NOT OUR CHOICE BUT IT IS GOD’S CHOICE
CCCS = Catechism of the Catholic Church Simplified.
The grace of God’s Justification CCCS 1990-1991; Justification is God’s free gift which detaches man from enslavement to sin and reconciles him to God.
Justification is also our acceptance of God’s righteousness. In this gift, faith, hope, charity, and OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S WILL are given to us.
The Grace of God’s Call (1996-1998)
Justification comes from grace (God’s free and undeserved help) and is given to us to respond to his call.
This call to eternal life is supernatural, coming TOTALLY from God’s decision and surpassing ALL power of human intellect and will. End quote.
Acts 13:48; … As many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
John 15:16; You did not chose Me, but I chose you.
John 6:65; … no one can come to Me unless it is granted to him by the Father.
John 6:44; No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him,
As you see DetectiveNiko; our salvation is 100 % God’s choice and 0 % our choice.
When God calls and draws an un-regenerated/carnal man into His service/salvation WITHOUT stimulus, merit, or condition and without regard to any future supernatural merits, His calling is backed up with an ABSOLUTE DECREE.
And in consequence of this DECREE, God gives them all the graces necessary for its accomplishment. – DE FIDE Dogma. + Infallible teachings of the Trent. + The Grace of God’s Justification CCCS (1990-1991). + The Grace of God’s Call CCCS (1996-1998).
At Initial Justification God’s special grace The Gift of Final Perseverance given to EVERY initially Justified which grace INFALLIBLE makes sure every Initially Justified dies in the state of grace. – DE FIDE Dogma. + Infallible teachings of the Trent.
Of course we are still responsible for our actions, even as God’s children/elect, cannot lose our salvation.
In the LIGHT OF THE ABOVE THEOLOGICAL FACTS, can anyone surprised that God’s will is to save EVERYONE and He will save EVERYONE.
Of course there are many other reasons as well that God’s will is to save everyone.
God bless you DetectiveNiko and God bless every readers of the CAF.
