Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
There is no contradictions between the "whoever believes" concept, and "chosen before the foundation of the world " concept. The 2 are teaching by the same God whom we know is perfect and clear!
Therefore we must reconcile both concepts. It's easy: Anyone who believes that the Lord Jesus is God dreseed up with flesh , blood, and bones and that his death, burial, and resurrection (+ nothing) is sufficient to get him into heaven is elect of God!
No man can come to me ( Jesus) except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44
