<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>[color:red]One of the characteristics of Christ's sheep are that they follow Christ. A person who is unregenerate (even if he/she is one of the elect) obviously does not follow Jesus before they come to Him. So your argument that you must be a sheep to respond to the call is invalid.</font color=red><p><hr></blockquote><p><br><br>Well as usual you've mixed your metaphors and have produced a syllogism that is not accurate. Sheep which are a metaphor for the elect come to Christ because His call is effective. The sheep come no matter what their state because they are His (as all elect are) and must come. <br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>[color:red] I believe what it is actually saying is that those who love the Father (just as many under the Jewish law did), were Christ's sheep and would come to Him.</font color=red><p><hr></blockquote><p> <br><br>Well its nice to know you believe this I have questions with regard to your proofs for this but it can wait for later. Why don't you instead answer what Paul S posted???<br>
