Our believing and embracing the true and living God is not caused by man's boasted, so called "free-will" (Psalm 65:5). Man's will is like his depraved and God-less nature which is always selfward and downward, never God-ward and upward (Eph. 2:3). All who proclaim and promote free-will works religion promote the mind-set of Satan, for he is the author of it (Isaiah 14:12-15). Our believing is the result of our Lord Jesus Christ making an effectual blood atonement for our sin (Heb.9.12). Our believing is the result of irresistible grace. It is the work of God the Holy Spirit calling in mercy and giving faith and spiritual life to dead sinners (Eph. 2: 1; Jn. 17:2).
