Do ALL People Get Drawn To Jesus Or Just Some

free will election calvinism double predestinationIt seems that many people have misread a Scripture often used to support the Calvinistic view of election (John 6:44) or heard that same passage taught in such a way that they have read into it something which is NOT there! To view a Scripture with preconceived ideas of what it says can be very dangerous! This text teaching will prove that to be true. Such is not the way to study the Bible. Carefully read Jesus’ teaching, without reading into it anything beyond what is stated:

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. (John 6:44)

Gospel Observations

  • The Father must draw people before they can come to Jesus
  • The Father draws people to Jesus (not to himself or Jesus and Mary)
  • Jesus will raise such a person up in the last day

What John 6:44 does NOT say is the Father only draws some people to Jesus! Please read John 6:44 again and you will be able to verify that. So the answer to how many people (some or all) are drawn to Jesus is NOT answered in John 6:44. Other Scriptures answer that important theological question for us. That is why we must compare Scripture with Scripture when studying the Bible. Note other related Scriptures which add additional light to the question about all or some people being drawn to Jesus:

  • But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself. (John 12:32) [NOTE: The same Greek word for draw is found in John 6:44 and John 12:32!]
  • The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Pet 3:9)
  • This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (1 Tim 2:3,4)
  • and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. (2 Thess 2:10)

How Many Are Drawn To Jesus Answered:

  • Jesus draws ALL people to himself (not just some)
  • Jesus draws people to Jesus (not to the Father and/or Mary too)
  • God does NOT want anyone to perish
  • One must REPENT to avoid perishing
  • God wants ALL TO BE SAVED and come to a knowledge of the truth
  • The people who do perish, perish because they refuse (their own choice) to love the truth and be saved.

These additional eternal life truths illuminate John 6:44, to clearly reveal that all five point Calvinists (John MacArthur, etc.) have MISUSED and read into John 6:44 trying to force out support for unconditional election, when NONE is there! Furthermore, the ramification of their dogma is that God has created some people to NEVER have a chance at salvation. The god of Calvinism created them and they will burn forever in a fiery place prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt. 25:41)! Most shockingly, Calvinism also teaches INFANT DAMNATION for the non-elect babies! The mythical god of Calvinism is a cruel god, who forces himself on some and doesn’t allow all to come to eternal life! Such is also known as the Horrible Decree. John 6:44 is a passage which could be added to Scriptures often used out of context! Unconditional election is NOT the salvation offered by the Lord Jesus! ALL PEOPLE CAN COME TO JESUS FOR SALVATION:

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Mat 11:28,29)

Do you know Jesus Christ NOW (1 John 2:3,4)? Do you know how to find peace with God? IF you are NOT set free from your sin addictions NOW, you are NOT a Christian now (Rom. 6:22)!
