Dear Arminian, why God keeps you confused or hardened beats me. Why he won’t let you see that when he has begun a good work in you, he will certainly perform it is beyond me. And that, alas, is how it should be and always shall be – beyond me. What is that you say, that God has indeed begun a good work in you and will certainly perform it until the day of Jesus Christ? You mean that you were free to open the door of your heart to Jesus but are not free to boot him out when the spirit moves you? What’s that, you will do no such thing? Why not? Because you trust you won’t? Trust whom, Jesus? No, silly, yourself, of course, for how can you allow Jesus to shackle the most precious thing you have, which ultimately saved you – your free will.
