No...Christ came to seek and save the LOST. We were ALL lost until God saved some of us. What do you think "saved" means? It means we were once like everyone else, but now we're not. Election pertains to the LOST that God has chosen to adopt.
Aenon, God love ya man, and I enjoy talking with you but you have not grasped this doctrine IMO.
"Predestination" can only refer to the saved!!! God does NOT elect people to hell my friend. That destroys the freedom of choice and choice for God is rooted in LOVE not Law.
Read Romans 8:28-29 for clarity.
"And we know that all things work together for good TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
FOR WHOM HE DID FORKNOW HE ALSO DID PREDESTINATE TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that He might be the firstborn among many brethern".
There it is.......do you see it?????
We are talking about SAVED people. Those who are called according to His purpose are PREDESTINATED to be conformed to the image of His Son. Then Romans goes on to explain how that is done in 8:30..................
"Moreover whom he did PREDESTINATE, them He also CALLED, them he also justified and who he justified them he also gorified".
When God starts out with 100 sheep he will bring 100 sheep home.
