From the OP: “ He could not let go of his legalistic religious system and realize that salvation was a sovereign, gracious work of Gods Spirit.”
The text in John 3 indicates Nicodemus had not experienced the new birth. Whose fault was it Nicodemus had not been born again? God’s? The Holy Spirit’s? Nicodemus’?

(Heck is where people, who don't believe in Gosh, think they are not going...)
Consider when the conversation with Nic took place. God was proclaiming to the Jews that the Kingdom was at hand. They rejected the Kingdom beginning and God began the Age of Grace; at Pentecost building a body of faith based believers whom He birthed into His family.
I believe Nicodemus will be in the clouds soon ...
