So, yes, inserted here so that one point is not lost. Whether or not someone wants to believe in a Supreme Deity based on the Holy Scriptures is a personal choice, one made on acknowledging a spiritual void that can be filled only by believing in Jesus Christ as one's redeemer.

The Holy Spirit will meet anyone in earnest prayer for salvation, and those those who choose not to will have to reconcile that in their own way, if at all. It does not matter what language that is audibly spoken, but the matters of the heart are heard by Him whom we seek out in truth.

We whose English is the King's English can say only one thing to those who differ in their opinions regarding spiritual things, that which is already written by Paul, I Corinthians 1:18-21. The Gospels are about the love of Almighty God and His mercy, and only those who do not receive His love are apt to make sport of it.
