The more I read, the more evident it is that those who so vehemently defend OSAS are bound up in fear: They are afraid of the idea that we possess a free will and that it remains free after conversion. They are afraid of such freedom. But that simply dishonors and misunderstands God's nature. I rejoice in the fact that God loved me enough to want me to freely love Him and stay loyal to Him, as coerced loyalty is no true loyalty at all. Along with the Bible and the church for 1500 years, this is also how I know without a doubt that OSAS is false doctrine: it is contrary to God's nature. It goes right along with the legalistic, deterministic fatalism that is Calvinism which is diametrically opposed to the truth of God's nature and thus the nature of all humans and angels. God has always given everyone the freedom to choose whether to accept Him, love Him, and be loyal to Him, and He does not take away that freedom and ability to choose after conversion. He cannot do that because He cannot do anything contrary to Who He is. Those who hold to OSAS are afraid of the freedom that God gives them.
