Confusing ? Or Not !!!! .... God Foreknew . Romans 8:29 ........For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Does that mean that God knew the people would become believers or does He mean it was part of God's plan from the beginning . ? I have heard some say that only some are chosen and that is the confusing part . But look at Ephesians 1:4 -6 ..... For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves To me this is saying that God knew who would be Christ followers because He foreknew . Ah , but He chose us meaning everyone to be part of God's family . It was part of His plan from the beginning . He didn't just choose certain ones but we have the choice to follow , trust and believe or not .
