“If any person is an honest unbeliever and sincerely wants to know God, he will come to a saving faith. Folk with whom I have dealt who say that they cannot believe are not being honest. The fact of the matter is that no man’s eyes are blindfolded unless he himself chooses to be blindfolded. If a person really wants to know God and will give up his sin and turn to Christ, God will make Himself real to him. In our day the problem is that a great many folk do not really mean business with God.” J. Vernon McGee

Jeremiah 9:6 Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; Through deceit they refuse to know Me, says the Lord.

    On the quote below, I don’t like the way it’s worded–a little ambiguous. J Vernon McGee may not have had a reformed view of salvation–Im surprised you quoted him on this. People are dead in their sins and trespasses from the start, they don’t choose to be blindfolded. 2 Corinthians 4:4 makes that clear and Ephesians 2, plus Jesus called the Pharisees blind men many times, and they certainly knew who God was from the scriptures.

    Those who want to come to saving faith are those that the Spirit regenerates through the Gospel–there are no “seekers” of God for those still in their dead state (romans 3:10-11).

    However if his point was that people who are drawn by God will receive what they need to be saved, I agree with that because it’s biblical.
