Unconditional election unto damnation.

The straw man is ignoring that free will and election is in scripture now there is your straw man.
I asked you to prove free will using scripture, but you couldn't prove it. All you were able to do was demontrate your assumption that man has a free will because God commanded man to make a choice.

So I'm not ignoring "free will," I'm saying man's will is not free, which is what scripture says. Scripture says man's will is enslaved, either to sin, or to righteousness (Rom 6:16-23.

Therefore, it is YOU who is ignoring scrpture with regard to the Bondage of your will.
 
You won't listen to me. You're a true slave to your emotions, your religious syereotypes and their resultant straw men. Semper Fi ...
God gave me emotions did He not, and yes I am passionate about God’s word. I am a learner I do not know it all like many claim, but I do make an effort to see both sides and learn the truth as God intends for it to be understood.

Rom 6:16-23.
 
Rom 6:16-23.
Romans 6:15–23 (KJV 1900) — 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. 20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

That disprives a limited free will How?

By saying, Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?

There is only one choice, Tom, slavery.

Free will is a philosophical construct, not a biblical / theological construct.

Prove it - quoting a passage is not proof
 
You didn't prove man's free will. As @fltom does, you assume man's free will even in the face of scripture asserting the bondage of your will (Rom 616-23).

You, and @fltom reject scriptural truth regarding to bondage of your will.
Since Jesus said whosoever believes that means some believe and some do not. When Paul told the jailer to be saved he must believe on the Lord Jesus that means he had to put his faith in Jesus. God does not faith for us( until after we are saved then He does increase our faith)

you seem to not understand that when we are born again we are free to serve God without being bound to and controlled by sin. Free will is in scripture you just refuse to study or consider the verses that teaches and proves free will.

I've responded to those points several times already. I'm not doing it again.

First you will You will note that it is when you present yourself to sin you become a slave

Free will is limited and it can be lost depending on previous responses

but primarily it holds man is able to respond to God's initiative

Seeing as the bible mentions free will 17-19 times it is hard to see how you can state it is philosophical construct, not a biblical / theological construct.

I think the problem is you do not really understand what a soft libertarian free will is
 
First you will You will note that it is when you present yourself to sin you become a slave
No, it doesn't say that.

It says, Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?

You missed much of the verse.
Free will is limited and it can be lost dependinon previous responses
Free will is a philosophical construct. In scripture, the only option is that of slave, either to sin, or to righteousness.

but primarily it holds man is able to respond to God's initiative
You're reciting a philosophical narrative. I'm stating a biblical truth.

Seeing as the bible mentions free will 17-19 times it is hard to see how you can state it is philosophical construct, not a biblical / theological construct.
Scripture never describes man's will as free, and you know it.

I think the problem is you do not really understand what a soft libertarian free will is
As I've said, it's a philosophical construct, not a biblical / theological construct.
