not to enter into your debate, but am i to understand you express man has not free will, because his will is guided by sin? and it is in this bondage that man feels his separateness from God? and it is by some miracle then that we are granted a cleansing of heart and spirit by ritual means? baptism, public ceremonial acknowledgments,personal commitments to laws,blood covenants, ect?
or is it by grace alone god gives us the pleasure of sharing in his kingdom by acknowledging his love through our own free will?
does not a singer rely on free will of his audience to receive his soul?
does not the singer need the audience as the audience needs the singer?
does not a lover need a free spirit to return his love?
a tyrant needs slaves.
a lover stands at the doors of our hearts, and awaits acceptance.
sorry to interrupt.
