    There is always something a person has to do to merit God's Grace.

    Romans 10:9-10
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.



    If you don't accept Christ as your savior, you haven't merited God's Grace.

    The only thing that God requires of us is that we believe in his Son Jesus Christ, Ephesians 1:13.

    Yes, God's Grace is never unmerited.
    The Bible tells us what we need to do to merit God's Grace.

    An eternally forgiven World 2 Cor. 5:19;

    Rom. 4:7-8

    7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

    8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

    What end will you go to, to make God a liar and Calvinism the truth.

    There is only one world. It is the world that God loves and sent his Son to save, John 3:16.

    Those aren't your words. Not that it matters who much said that, but if you're going to quote instead of speaking for yourself please give the reference?

    That's a passage for which people have different ideas. Thanks for your answer.

    The scriptures do not say that "works of" righteousness can merit God's Grace.
    But the scriptures do instruct us in how to merit God's Grace apart from "works of" righteousness.

    There is only one world. It is the world that God loves and sent his Son to save,
    False and unlearned statement. Jesus in n 17:9 says theres a world He doesn't pray for:

    I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

    For one to believe that this world for whom Christ refused to pray for is the same world that He Loved and gave Himself for is deceived !

    Dear Genuine: I will state it again, and again if necessary! The love and grace of our great God is unmerited by any and all of the broken wrecks of sin. ALL!

    "NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He has saved us."

    Repeat: NOT!

    Repeat: "but according to His mercy He has saved us."

    You are not only deceived you are twisted! The Master of reconciliation declares in no uncertain terms>>>

    "I will draw ALL mankind unto Me."

    This is your homework assignment for today.

    1. Define the koine monon.

    2. Define the koine malista.

    NOTE

    "He is [the] propitiation for our sins & not our sins ONLY but the sins of the whole world."

    Yes broken one; He is the hilasmos of the holos!
