1. If God does not overcome our free will, Can a non-calvinist actually pray for God to save someone, or do we pray that God would simply "try his best." 2. If God does not overcome our sinful free will, does this mean God cares more about respecting our free will than he cares about our eternal souls? If your child is running into the street, despite your pleading for her to repent and turn around, would you just let her go, or go get her? Why wouldn't it be better for God, like a loving father, to overcome our free will for our own good?
