Ive always been told and taught that we have the free will to choose Jesus or not. In working on my Bible study today I came across this in reference to freewill: "Man has a will. But Luther said it was a "will in bondage." And the Bible says that our will is always a slave. It's either a slave to sin, or a slave to righteousness." Without Christ we are dead in sin and cannot be righteous and we will always choose sin. So, with all this being said, I'd like to know your thoughts on Roman's 8:29 when Paul talks about being predestined. Does God have to reveal himself to us before we can make the choice to follow Him?
