Sorry I am on vacation but look at the context and content of Eph. 2 and you will see by the context men are dead in trustpasses and sin which addresses this subject. First God must quicken by God because they are dead and then God saves them by His grace not before. Carnal man is dead... Spiritual dead how can any thing dead choose anything?

The Word preached is God calling them. They can refuse. They can said:Joh 12:47 [/B]And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. (Not just the chosen but those that believe)Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth (Purposeful action taken) me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. Jesus Is Lord
