Mel Wild’s post on who does God chose for salvation aptly shows God chose all and wants all.
Now religion says it is up to us to do something in order to get saved and ‘go to heaven’.
God’s Not Dead 2 movie shows the traditional process – a young gal confesses her sins to God, asks Him to forgive her of all those sins, and asks Jesus to come into your heart.
