You gave me verses except for what I asked and then stated what i asked for was self explanatory.Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful
Hebrews 4:12. Source of our thoughts and intentions
1 Samuel 16:7. The Lord looks upon the heart.
Matthew 15:18 whatever comes out of the mouth precedes from the heart.
Psalms 37:4 our desires come from the heart.
And many more.
God turning the heart where He wishes it yo go should be self explanitory. God is soverign over your desires.
How does that work? Control without force? Can you explain from scripture what you mean?
Ok. where does the Bible teach "control"? We can look at those verses and see if they include or imply forceYour question is fallacious.
You ASSUME "control" is "force", and when we reject your assumption, you shift the burden of proof.
Where does the BIBLE teach "control is force"?
The word control means there is a force at work to accomplish an action/goal.So you can't show where the Bible teaches "control is force".
Thank you for the admission.
Yup Exodus 11:5The word control means there is a force at work to accomplish an action/goal.
But you sounded as if you thought the Bible had verses that taught something different.
Was there a reason why you doubted that control takes force? What scriptures were you thinking of?
