    Default Who Does God Favor? Calvinists or Christians?

    In Luke 2 the angel of the Lord said, "I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David" (vv. 10,11).

    Who was Jesus born for? "all people". Jesus would die for the sins of the whole world.

    "Glory to God in the highest heavens, and peace on earth to people He favors" (v.14). Who does God favor? Those who accept His only begotten Son. Peace on earth good will to people; peace on earth to men of good will. Who has good will? Those, again, who accept the Messiah, the Christ, the anointed "sovereign".

    "For my eyes have seen Your salvation. You have prepared it in the presence of ALL PEOPLES-a light of revelation to the Gentiles and glory to Your people of Israel" (Luke 2.32).

    The Messiah who was born will die on the cross for the sins of the whole world, for all people, whosoever is willing.

    Whosoever is willing? Of course. Free will. Calvinism is a heresy.

    Simeon to the surprise of Jesus' mother said, "Indeed, this child is destined to cause the fall and rise of many in Israel and to be a sign that will be opposed and spoken against-and a sword will pierce your own soul-that the thoughts and schemes of many hearts may be revealed" (Luke 2.34,35).
