Make Your Own Decision.

The Bible is not addressed to just anybody. Its message is directed to a chosen few. Whether these few are chosen by God in a sovereign act of election or are chosen because they meet certain qualifying conditions I leave to each one to decide as he may, knowing full well that his decision will be determined by his basic beliefs about such matters as predestination, free will, the eternal decrees and other related doctrines. But whatever may have taken place in eternity, it is obvious what happens in time: Some believe and some do not; some are morally receptive and some are not; some have spiritual capacity and some have not. It is to those who do and are and have that the Bible is addressed. Those who do not and are not and have not will read it in vain

Hmm...I found this to be a very interesting concept. Considering that I am an open minded christian and am far from being insular, it would be great if you could explain this more in depth. This is a topic that had been brought up recently among friends so feedback would be greatly appreciated. So are you saying that some people are just naturally predisposed to having a mindset without spirituality as a whole or strictly unreceptive to the christian faith?

I believe that Tozer has expalined himself to the letter and there is no room for any confusion as to his standpoint, you appear to be new here and not a lot is disclose in your profile, as such i have no idea where you are at as far as being saved or anything else pertaining to the Christian way of life, let me know privately if you want to find out more .
