WHY Others Are Not Attracted To God?

It is a popular belief or teaching that others are not attracted to God, refuse to follow Him, or find more pleasure in sin than God, because of our so-called free will.

And because of our human choice, others also believe that we are able to resist or disregard His Call.

BUT, what did the Word of God say?

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, told the Samaritan woman, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him..." (John 4:10, NKJV.)

If we really knew Who Jesus is, our reaction or choice would not be to reject or refuse Him or what He is offering!

Others reject God or refuse His Word because of their ignorance, or false or incomplete understanding of God. It is not just because of their choice.

But if we really knew Him, our immediate reaction is to admire, adore and worship Him -- not because we are forced, but because we are attracted to Him.
