Unless a person agrees to a contract independently, there is no contract. In the world this is referred to as strongarming.
The Gospel is offered as a contract between the individual and the living God. He will not bully anyone into accepting the contract of the Gospel.
The tactics of wicked men are not used by the Holy Lord of life. If you want to live for eternity you must agree to the Lord’s terms willingly.
To hope in your own righteousness will only result in your creation of a new contract offer. But will your contract please God? Does the sacrifice of the Son of God get included in your offer? If not, you have nothing to offer.
