When God hardens someone, is that against the "free will" of the one he hardens? Does this mean that God is hardening them against their "own will?" He said He hardened Pharaoh, by the way. Not vice versa, or better, not that Pharaoh did this on his own. Looks to me like Pharaoh didn't have a free will either. He was a lump of clay the Potter used for His glory, as with all of us. All glory goes to Him, He does all the saving.
