Dear Ron,

"In other words, why did you choose Christ, while another chooses the world? Who caused you to differ from another in this regard?"

The decision to accept or reject the calling of God rests with each individual, for God has delegated to each man a responsibility for his soul. This concept is plainly derived from scripture. But as far as who made us differ in the context of the scripture Pilgrim quoted, God did, for it is ultimately God who justifies us.

In Christ,
