You must choose Christ to be saved

You Must Choose Christ to be Saved

While man is passive in being born again, he, receiving a new nature that inclines to that which is spiritually good, is 100% active in turning from sin to Christ.  Thomas Manton, the puritan exhorts us to choose Christ, and William Cunningham the 1800’s Free Church of Scotland professor lays out the theology behind it.
