First, let us assume that God wants at least one person to go to heaven. We will call him p1 , and designate = Godp1 true to mean that God wants to save p1 = Let p1 person : = Such That Godp1 true Now remember that according to 2 Peter 3:9; Acts 10:34; Eph 6:9; Col 3:25 & 1 Peter 1:17 God is not a respecter of persons, so if there are N people who ever lived, then we can say that: = = =⋯= =…= =⋯= - = p1 p2 p3 pi pj pN 1 pN p Now, using this, we see that: = Godp true Now let us say that if = Godpi reality then God can force any person pi to go to heaven. And, according to you God does indeed have this capability, so we will suppose that: = Godpi reality Now, substituting in p for pi , we get: = Godp reality However, we know that not all people go to heaven, so it is also true that at some arbitrary

Either ≠ Godp1 true or ≠ Godpj reality Now, if you believe the first is incorrect, then there is no point in debating this any longer, as you obviously do not believe in the same bible that I do.
