Thought I would start a new thread since this topic is running in several different threads. I'm asking my fellow calvinists to help me clarify what we mean when we say that man's will is bound but he can freely choose. It's my understanding that Adam had true free choice. When he chose sin, he sort of "flipped the switch" for all mankind. The unregenerated have inherited a will that is in bondage to sin. So the unregenerate are free to choose sin, and they are free choose what color shirt to wear today; but they are not free to choose God until God regenerates them, infusing his nature into them, yet leaving the old nature in place, so that we experience trouble in the flesh as described in Rom 7. Am I on track?
