Are You Saved?
Why you cannot save yourself.
The following video says "God desires that everyone should be saved."https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IjHGtCHyBrU#t=72
Dobbie says: Yes, the New Testament says it (1 Timothy). But elsewhere it says that‑‑
Predestination alone saves.Ephesians 1:4–6 [H]e chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace.
God's will alone saves.
The video states "But [God] will not save you without your consent."
But Dobbie says: Well, the New Testament teaches that salvation is possible through predestination, God's will. Human will plays no part. So the Christian preacher misunderstood the doctrine.
