Acts 16:30-31

"30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." 


Charlie Martin
This verse, along with all the verses, which say, "believe, repent, and obey" in connection with salvation, are often given as proof that the doctrine of election is not valid. It must be kept in mind that these are all spiritual acts, also that Holy Scripture is a spiritual document and that it deals with spiritual matters. We know the Bible teaches that to natural man spiritual matters are meaningless and cannot be discerned by him. Therefore the supposition that these types of verses disprove "election" is not valid. In addition, none of these types of verses indicate that all mankind has the capability to follow their admonition.

Then why does the Bible say to repent, believe, obey, etc.
