More like, He knows who chose His salvation. Remember, it is not forced upon, thus, people must choose to be saved or to be damned. So rather than make it sound as if people are saved so they can do whatever pleases them because they can't be lost again, it is a choice. You can choose a beautiful woman to be your wife today and sadly you can choose to let her go tomorrow. It is a mutual relationship and understanding, not puppet to puppeteer.<quoted text>
Yours, Grace's, my, and every other person's efforts at righteousness are works of futility because we cannot be righteous because of our own efforts. They are a bunch of filthy rags.
You might try at looking at the scriptures from a spiritual standpoint rather than a physical one. That is what the Judaizers did (physical standpoint) and they, for certain, became self-righteous and Jesus told them what He thought about them.
Ever since you've been posting here you have been pompously describing your works of righteousness, yet you claim humility. Is that not a bit ironic?
God knows who He has saved, and to those He gives assurance; and they know who they are.
I hope you're not offended by this, just throwing in my 5 cents worth.
