Scripture invariably treats us as morally responsible
agents. It lays upon us the necessity of choice ... Why is
it that people do not come to Christ? Is it that they
cannot, or is it that they will not? Jesus taught both.
And in this 'cannot' and 'will not' lies the ultimate
antinomy between divine sovereignty and human
responsibility. But however we state it, we must not
eliminate either part. Our responsibility before God is an
inalienable aspect of our human dignity. Its final
expression will be on the day of judgment.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
