is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Since many Calvinists think that one cannot have faith without God first planting that seed for faith to be conceived at some point in time in the life of the "elect", why is it so easily seen and understood that for one to have faith that person must first choose what he believes? I hope for that which is not yet seen, and the evidences of that faith are prevelent in my life. I also choose to believe that it is the workings of God to my benefit and His glory as things either happen or don't happen. Then if I do things according to my will it is by my conscious choice to do so, so how then is it not my choice but yet was His choice all along? I choose to take illegal drugs, per se, does that then become that God made me choose to take those drugs and thus become the originator of all sin? God forbid.
