I’m wondering how, in this theology, you would avoid the conclusion that individuals are not responsible for their sin (only God is) or the call for each to repent as Jesus taught?

Of course individuals are responsible for their sins and repentance is required. Why? Because scripture plainly states such. If you're having a hard time reconciling God's sovereignty with human free will, then welcome to the club. Scripture plainly teaches both. Any difficulties we may have are due to the difference between our feeble minds and God's infinite mind.

it's incredible that some could say So, an infant or menally challenged person will be saved if they are of the elect. If not, they will burn in hell for their sins
