Your weak link...

When you use the anchor assertion " Now if we can truly choose "in that hour" to either accept or reject God's grace (and I think we can) then we must have free will prior to receiving grace" you miss a very important consideration... You assume we accept before the fact. Why assume we accept anything prior to receiving faith?

Correctly stated we receive (are given freely as a gift) or we reject. There is no free will in the receiving of the gift of faith, only corrupted free will to reject at the urging of the great deceiver.

In my case of late in life faith, I came to a realization of the truth when the Holy Spirit planted faith in my heart. ML was bang on in his argument of bound will of the sinner.
