How can we best understand Romans 8:28 and the encouragement given there? Galatians 5 might be interpreted to say that if anyone does anything on the list of sins there, they will not inherit the kingdom of God. Is this true? If Romans 9 isn’t about God individually selecting certain people for salvation, then what is it really about? What about the wedding feast where “few are chosen”? Is there any criteria for them being chosen to participate in the feast?
