by focusing on man’s so-called freewill, and man’s freewill decision, it’s hard to see that God has much of a role in thing thing. It’s like man-worship, not God-worship.
After all, God only made your salvation “possible”…. not actual.
It’s possible… but that’s about it.
Nothing to see here, move along.
“It is not of him that willeth” says Paul. (SEE Romans 9:16-19)


16 Consequently, then, it is not of him who is willing, nor of him who is racing, but of God, the Merciful.
17 For the scripture is saying to Pharaoh that “For this selfsame thing I rouse you up, so that I should be displaying in you My power, and so that My name should be published in the entire earth.”
18 Consequently, then, to whom He will, He is merciful, yet whom He will, He is hardening.
19 You will be protesting to me, then, “Why, then, is He still blaming? for who has withstood His intention?”
20 O man! who are you, to be sure, who are answering again to God? That which is molded will not protest to the molder, “Why do you make me thus?”
