Yes, indeed, many refuse to come to Christ, but those who call upon the name of the Lord are SAVED.

Why is it important to you to persuade people to NOT call to Christ?
Suprisingly not here as well.

I am not going to continue with this since you are only playing games here.
Nothing about reaching out at all, just coming at HIS BIDDING.

YOU TOO, REFUSED TO COME UNTIL HE OPENED YOUR EYES FOR YOU TO SEE HIM , so your understanding of this scripture is poor to say the least.

I hope you are not falsely accusing me again of persuading people to not believe in Christ.

Come into my heart Lord Jesus

How do you ask Jesus to come into your heart to be your Savior ?
And then, when you pray that prayer in sincerity, you will be like this -for He surely comes in when you open the "door of your heart"

I can't help but wonder what motivates people to tell others there is no reason whatsoever to pray for Christ to save them?

OK, so you ARE saying that people do NOT need to do anything. That's what I said earlier, but you said you never said anything of the sort.

It still becomes the fact that no matter how sugar coated or cute the abstract argument ... this is still the absolute truth God was pleased to save those who believe.

1 Corinthians 1:21
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

It's about him reaching out to us ,you can deny it as much as you want, but i do care, that you believe you were responsible for finding him and reaching out to him.

You have now gone from faith in a sinners prayer to your comfort zone belief that you found jesus in the narrow way, while blinded and reached out out to him.Denying all along that he came to seek and save the lost,blind,deaf and everyone else who else who was in a helpless situation.

Well, there are many reasons that different sorts of men do not want men to call on the name of the LORD to be saved, not saying here, but "just sayin'" that one for instance was the self righteous hypocrisy of the Pharisees, seen in the Word, in Matt 23:13
Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
When Jesus was preaching the Gospel, the main body of the Pharisees did not want anyone to be saved, and they refused to be saved themselves, because they liked their religion without relationship, and without repenting of their sins, as we saw in the two men who went into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a Publican, when the Pharisee praised himself to God, and was not justified by God; and the Publican humbled himself before the LORD God, was repentant of his sins, and was justified.

Yes, it pleases God, and angels rejoice when a sinner repents.

Luke 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents
