Rated R for Reformed

Its hard to know all your 5 million or even 50 followers and friends on Facebook or Twitter or circled ones (on Google+) intricately.

RATED R FOR REFORMED

IT IS GOD WHO:
– draws people to Himself (John 6:44,65). 
– creates a clean heart (Psalm 51:10). 
– appoints people to believe (Acts 13:48). 
– works faith in the believer (John 6:28-29). 
– chooses who is to be holy and blameless (Eph. 1:4). 
– chooses us for salvation (2 Thess. 2:13-14). 
– grants the act of believing (Phil. 1:29). 
– grants repentance (2 Tim. 2:24-26). 
– calls according to His purpose (2 Tim. 1:9). 
– causes us to be born again (1 Pet. 1:3). 
– predestines us to salvation (Rom. 8:29-30). 
– predestines us to adoption (Eph. 1:5). 
– predestines us according to His purpose (Eph. 1:11). 
– makes us born again not by our will but by His will (John 1:12-13).
