God's Word is certain.
So what was the point of Jesus Challenging Nicodemus ?

We are not robots, programmed to live untill a set time and then downoad a new progrsamme.
We are thinking, moral, spiritual flawed beings, made in the image of God.

Whilw God has planned creation, salvation etc etc we still have a responcibility to respond to God.

Just as od is gracious in saving us so he is also gentle in how he deals with us.
Not everyone is blinded by a sight of Gods glory like Saul/Paul was.

Yes, but who would perceive the motivation behind the scenario you just laid out except for God, the man himself , & maybe the boss ?
No one else would be privy to the details .
The vast majority would perceive this as " good Fruit " .
Agreed. It is not always easy to tell, but over time you can sometimes see it. But really, it is not on us to see it, but to be examples and hope he becomes a true sheep.
