Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?
How many times have I brought up Romans 9, Melkite? Are you kidding me? This has been done ad nauseam.

And what about Romans 8, a chapter earlier?

Romans 8:29-30 Wrote:"For whom he foreknew, he also predestinated to be made conformable to the image of his Son; that he might be the firstborn amongst many brethren. And whom he predestinated, them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified."

Can it get any clearer than this?

Philippians 2:13 Wrote:"For it is God who worketh in you, both to will and to accomplish, according to his good will."

God is the primary cause, both of the interior acts of the will (“to will”) and of the exterior acts of our other powers (“to accomplish”). Apart from Him we "can do nothing." (John 15:5)

Predestination is a de fide doctrine, as I have shown you before. Try also Matthew 25:34, John 1:12-13, John 10:27-29, Acts 13:48 and Ephesians 1:4-15.
