Me? No bud I don’t think so.Why are you ignoring why they rejected Him as He taught ?
Regeneration. And then, it wasn’t they chose to believe, they believed.What was the difference between those who chose to believe and those who loved darkness more than light ?
Jest like Peter said to the jailer.- Believe.
Not to make a decision to believe.
Lol. Your all mixed up.Same message 2 different results and Jesus explained why. Your explanation was never mentioned by Jesus in those verses. It’s pretty clear based on why according to Jesus it was because they loved darkness more than light.
Of course they loved darkness and not light. They are in darkness and can’t see the kingdom until they are first born again. Until then they are God haters just as you and I were.
