Man Will Not and Cannot Seek God

Man will never on their own accord seek after God, for by our own nature we are depraved, and we hate all things that are good: we are filled with evil from birth. Psalms 51:5 KJV Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. No man, not a single one can do good, none. Romans 3:10-12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. For there is only one that does good, and that one is God and God alone. Mark 10:18 KJV And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. If anyone claims otherwise, they are a false teacher and antichrist; for by claiming that one is good, they are therefore claiming to be God. This is in direct contradiction to the scriptures, for God states clearly that the only one that is good, the only one that can choose to do good, is God. Man on the other hand, unless God gives man repentance to the truth, can only lie, cheat, steal and shed blood. For the way of peace no man knows: there is no fear of God in man. Romans 3:13-17 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes. The only way a man can come to God is if God has chosen that man form the foundation of the world; for it is written that man does not choose God, but God chooses man for His good will and pleasure. John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Ephesians 1:4-6 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated (G4309, chosen from beforehand, in advance) us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,

according to the good pleasure of his will (G2307, as according to the will of God, not man), To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. proorizo (G4309) to limit in advance, that is, (figuratively) predetermine: - determine before, ordain, predestinate. thelema(G2307) a determination (properly the thing), that is, (actively) choice (specifically purpose, decree; abstractly volition) or (passively) inclination: - desire, pleasure, will. God chooses whom he chooses; we cannot and will not choose him out of free-will, for freewill we do not have. Man if filled with the will of self, and will always choose self, unless God has chosen otherwise for that man. It is God who has mercy on whom He has mercy, and grace upon whom He has grace. Romans 9:15-18 KJV For he saith to Moses, I will (God will) have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will (God will) have compassion on whom I will (God will) have compassion. (16) So then it is not of him (not of man) that willeth, nor of him (not of man) that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. (17) For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I (God) raised thee up, that I (God) might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. (18) Therefore hath he (God) mercy on whom he (God) will have mercy, and whom he (God) will he hardeneth. God will harden whom he hardens and make alive whom He wills; man do not have a say in the matter. For whatever God Has chosen from the foundation of the world will not be changed, and there is not a soul that will deliver you out of the hand of God. His has it set for you, or against you from the beginning. Deuteronomy 32:39 KJV See now that I (God), even I (God), am he, and there is no god with me: I (God) kill, and I (God) make alive; I (God) wound, and I (God) heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my (God) hand. Are we as men so arrogant as to tell God what we think He means? He has stated and chosen, and He means what He means. Quote: Who could worship or honor a God who had no plan, or purpose, or intention in what he did? Who can believe that the universe was formed and is governed without design? Who can doubt that what God “does” he always meant to do? When, therefore, he converts and saves a soul, it is clear that he always intended to do it. He has no new plan. It is not an afterthought. It is not the work of chance. If I can find out anything that God has “done,” I have the most certain conviction that he “always meant” to do it - and
