In this episode we go over John 6, and the often misunderstood passages:
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.
And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.”
Do these passages refer to unconditional election and irresistable grace?
