Just so you know, I have never believed nor taught that God only chose a few people to be saved and others are just out of the grace loop. This is a teaching called Calvinism, and I believe it’s entirely false. Each and every one of us has the God given right to choose. If we didn’t have, the Lord God would have nothing more than robots for his children instead of born again, converted souls who freely love Him, because He first loved us.
Every individual, whether saved or lost, has the liberty to choose what he or she believes is right or wrong according to their own beliefs and conscience or lack thereof. No one should ever be forced to subscribe to any belief against their free will.
However, this liberty never exempts one from his or her responsibility to the Word of God or being accountable to God.

- Romans 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
- 2nd Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
- Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
