What Is Unbelief?

Unbelief is a state of the will. If the will is not changed by the gospel and Spirit, unbelief is the heart status. Many think they believe but don't. Many don't know they don't believe.

The Spirit overcomes the will, showing the elect the misery of unbelief. The elect believe due to this spiritual circumcision because they have been confronted with their unbelief in a Savior by the Holy Spirit.

I believe a chair will support me. But that faith is not Godly faith, from God above. More people have chair faith than Godly faith. Chair faith in Christ will result in God saying he never knew you. 

Christ said He would send the Spirit because the world does not believe. The conviction of unbelief is the Spirit's primary role in the plan of redemption.

He told the Pharisees that they would die in their sins if they did not believe in Him. (John 8:24)

I cannot emphasis enough that the Lord is sovereign, and He chooses a few from all of us who deserve eternal damnation. (Rom 9:16) The Apostle Peter said in 2 Peter 1:1 that the believers and himself obtained or received faith itself! Faith does not originate in the free will of man.

This is serious business, folks. Please do not be fooled by the Protestant/Augustinian doctrine of a pregospel law work in the heart. The gospel does not rely on the law in any way! The gospel is not of human origin! (Acts 15:10, Heb 7:19, Galatians 1:11-12)
