You're not staying on point. When did I ever argue on the contrary? The Plan of Redemption and Application of it are not contrary either. God's Word shall come to pass. So, in the Covenant of Redemption (Plan of Redemption) God chose his elect before the foundation of the world to be saved and redeemed by His Son and his finished works that fulfilled God's Covenant that unfolded throughout time and history to the culmination of the Cross, Resurrection and Reign of Christ on the throne. All of this was God's Plan, Covenant, Promise, his word that He will do, and this is the Pure Gospel that Paul preached!
The Gospel is calling of God's voice through the preaching of it, his word is alive, it brings to life those who are his sheep to hear and see. They understand, believe and follow him. And it's not by anything we contribute or do. Titus 3 is crystal clear on that.
