DO NOT FOLLOW A PHARISEE!

MANY CALLED FEW CHOSEN




Believers on Pharisee Paul's predestination lie, that God chooses whom he shall bestow "saved by grace" upon, and whom he shall choose to bestow wrath upon, claim that Christ saying "many are called but few are chosen", proves that predestination is truth.  But a careful reading of Christ's parables on the matter of "many are called but few are chosen" shows he says no such thing that there is predestination:

Matthew 22:1-14   And Christ answered and spoke unto them by parables saying, the kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king which made a marriage for his son, and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding ...  So the servants went out into the highways and gathered together all as many as they found, both  good and bad, and the wedding was furnished with guests.  And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man that did not have a wedding garment on ... take him away into outer darkness ... for many are called but few are chosen


Who is not chosen in the above parable, it is the man who is evil.  The guests furnished for the wedding feast included "good and bad", and the bad are not chosen.  The good are signified by those who have on wedding garments and the bad one is signified by the one who is not wearing wedding garments.  Another example that proves Christ is saying it is the bad who are not chosen, but all are called.   Called but failed to turn from evil deeds which means though called, they are not chosen because they refused to give up evil deeds:

Matthew 13:47-50  Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind .., gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.  So shall it be at the end of the world, the angels shall come forth and sever the wicked from the just

Matthew 13:41  Christ shall send forth his angels who shall remove all evil people and all offensive things from the earth


And there is seen again that in the matter of  'many are called but few are chosen', Christ is speaking of evil people being called, but they are not chosen because they refused to give up evil deeds.  And there is seen Christ once again confirming that there are righteous people, as the just (righteous) remain on earth at Christ's second coming, but the evil are removed from the earth by Christ's angels.  Pharisee Paul claims that no one is just, as he says all are dead in their sins, all are unrighteous. 

Clearly, in the matter of "many are called but few are chosen", Christ is saying that evil people are not chosen, though called.   Therefore, it is a lie of Pharisee Paul that the evil are made alive in Christ, as he states in Ephesians 2:5.
