Leave your thoughts on De Servo Arbitrio “On the Enslaved Will” or The Bondage of Will here
If you read my comment and your reply you will find it did not deny grace is present and God hovers over the heart prior to any decision to come to Christ or opening the door. That does not mean a person is free to do good works of her/his own volition, or has the living water Christ speaks of flowing from within them.
Please confirm whether the 3 questions below accurately reflect your response to the concept that men/women are not born with a free will. You might read my reply to Tom to see the scope and nature of what I am saying based on what I understand Luther to mean by free will.
1. How can God hold that person accountable?
2. How is it that some accept and others reject Christ?
3. Those who submit to Christ end up slaves without free will then too?
