    Bobcat1, when Jesus said, "Many are called, but few are chosen"?, did he mean "chosen to go to Heaven"?

    Blessedp, I agree with you that not all Christians will go to heaven. The last sentence, however, is controversial to non-Christians. To me, Jesus is a mentor and teacher, and the rest is up to the individual.

    I am not a Christian and my impression when I first read that sentence, I thought it mean "Many are called to become Christian, but few are chosen to go to Heaven". But I was told that my interpretation is wrong.
