Since I have banned Ark from this blog. I am not interested in an argument with him. This is just a H/T for pointing out an interesting video.
Why do some believe in Jesus, and why do some refuse to believe? Mel’s post provides a good discussion of the matter, but I think it is worthwhile to remember that it is beyond our power either to make someone believe or even to make our self believe.
To have eternal life, we must believe, but whether we believe — whether we can hear and see the Word — depends upon the Father. Either the Father chooses to make it happen, or He does not.
That creates a puzzle. What do we do we have to do with making our self or others believe in Jesus? Frankly, I don’t know. I just know Jesus wants us to believe and to spread His Gospel to others. I just know that God has given us the privileges of spreading His Word and believing in Him, but the Glory is strictly His, not of our own doing. He has left us nothing about which we can boast except Him.
