True - unless this is some kind of trick question.

The last few words, "God chose us" make me think there's something to this question that I'm not picking up on. If you believe that God chose you, then you must beleve that he did so before you beleived in Him. Therefore, your faith couldn't have had anything to do with his decision because it came after He decided. Also, since the fact that you would come to believe in Him depends on Him having first chosen you, then that couldn't have had anything to do with His decision either.

In light of this, it seems like an easy question, which makes me think I'm missing something - maybe in the "scripture never speaks" part. When can we expect the Tinker's take?
