I agree but are really telling me that we should rationalize anything? Are we never to use reason?Everyone sins because God made us and gave us that ability.
That doesn't mean that it's a good thing to do.
Any imperative to believe is proof we have a choice and that’s exactly what Paul and Silas told the jailer, “Believe (imperative) in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved”I don't see anything there about "choosing to believe".
And if it were that important a doctrine, don't you think it would be found at least quite a few times in the NT?
Brainwash you, really??Yeah, you keep saying that.
Are you trying to brainwash me?
Is this supposed to be "proof by repeated assertion"?
