Lately, I have been wondering how people "dead in sin" wind up in church. I was reading the Calvinist view, the Arminian view and the Lutheran view, which is basically like the Wesleyan view. I was trying to figure out how people who are not "elect" are able to come to church when they are in a state of being "dead in sin," these people are not able to seek God out on their own, yet they are able to come to church. Common grace seemed to be the answer to this. The world is not as bad as it could be because of God's restraining grace and God's general goodness to mankind, even though he is not saving everyone. Someone yesterday told me that there was no such thing as common grace, it is all just a mystery and we should not worry about it. Any thoughts or responses to what I am seeking?
