To you who are reading this, I do not know you, but I deeply care about you and love you as a person no matter what you have done in the past or continue to do in the future. I not only want you to understand how high the stakes are when it comes to this thing we call life, but I also want to know you as a person, and as a friend. This plea isn’t just “get out of the fire while you still can”, it is also an invitation to journey with you, whoever you are, to help you, to love you as a person, to be your friend – a real friend –, and to answer any questions you have about the Gospel or Jesus or God or whatever. I really do care about you, and that’s why I write this. I write this out of genuine love and care, and yet sadness, knowing that many won’t hear this message preached to them or to those that do hear it will ignore it. I weep for them because I know the end that they will face when they die. If I was apathetic towards you or hated you, I would not go to such lengths to help you! If no one has ever said this to you, at least genuinely, I care about you and I love you for who you are, a person made beautifully in God’s image! (Genesis 1:27).

Do we have free-will?
This gets asked time and again. “Free will” here doesn’t refer to the power of choice, such as choosing a burger or chicken nuggets, but rather the issue if humankind has the power to choose God/salvation. Let’s review what Scripture has to say on the matter.
