Have you never read Romans 1:18-22 the key part says they have no excuse for God  is clearly seen in creation.

   This is very true thats why I have spent so much time and effort on the creation account in Genesis.
 On the other hand I can look at Gods glorious creation but how can I credit the God of the bible with it if I don't  know who he is       


The grace of God is such that anyone who is seeking him will find him.

again this is very true but before you can seek him you have to know who he is and you need some one to tell you who he is.
To this end God has chosen certain people to do that job the prophets and the apostels but they are a relatively small group


Through out the bible it is clear that there is a consequence of not following and serving God.

again very true but to serve God you must no who he is and what his will is the best way to serve him is to spread his word so that more can come to know him     

Love and Peace

Romans 1:18-22 there is no excuse for not worshipping God.

That is both the extreme requirement of God, but also the extent of his mercy and grace.
One does not have to know God just to be earnestly searching, God will make him self known.

Hi John
Thank you for your reply I think the following may help.

       For many are called, but few are chosen.
Matthew 22:14 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.22.14.KJV     


I take this to mean that  God has chosen certain people to spread his word first all the prophets then the apostles and through these all the rest are called the ones who are called can choose of their own freewill weather to turn to God or not.
So those who have been told about God can look at his glorious creation  and know that God exists.

Love and Peace

Hi John
Thanks for your reply  the parable is about God creating a marriage  for his son Jesus the first ones to be called was Israel but they refused the invite so God sent his messengers  out to the gentiles and many of them accepted the invite as we are told in revelations

        After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Revelation 7:9 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/rev.7.9.KJV       


All those who are dressed in white are those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour all those who do not have a white robe will be cast out.

Love and Peace

And not everyone accepts the invite.
 They end up excluded.
They end up in hell.

'For in that He died, He died unto sin once:
.. but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God.
.... Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin,
...... but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body,
.. that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
.... Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin:
...... but yield yourselves unto God,
........ as those that are alive from the dead,
.......... and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.'

((Rom 6:10-13) 

Praise God!

Hi John
No not everyone will accept the invite but on the other hand everyone has to be invited so when will this happen I say in the millenium everyone has to be invited so that they can accept or reject the gospel  of their own free will God loves us he wants as many as possible.

Thank you Chris for a lovely  piece of scripture.

Love and Peace
Dave
