    11. Would not the doctrine of free agency make man the cause of his own salvation?

    12. Can man be a free agent and God be a sovereign?

    13. Is anyone free that is a servant?

    14. Are not all men the servants of sin until they are made free by the Son?... John 8:34-36

    15. Is the sinner free to will, free to choose, free to love, free to become a Christian, or free to let it all alone?

    16. If we are saved by our free will, is it not a fact that the only difference between saved and the lost is that the saved made better use of their will?

    17. Has one the power over his will to incline it to good or to evil?

    18. How many different effects can arise from the same cause?

    19. Are we made free from sin before we become servants of God, or do we have to serve him to be made free from sin?

    20. Do we have to obey God in order to become a child of God?

    21. Does a child have to obey its parents in order to become a child of its parents?

    You brethren don't mind if I stir up the pot a little more do you... Put on your thinking caps these question are to test your faith... Like Paul said... Stir up your pure minds!... Brother Glen [​IMG] & [​IMG] Sister Charlotte [​IMG]

    Absolutely not. Without the death of Christ there would be no sacrifice for sins.

    Of course. There is nothing there that is contradictory in terms.

    Yes. My grandfather had two servants growing up, who ended up falling in love and marrying. They decided to move north and begin building a family. But this may not be what you meant.

    The passage says nothing about the method that Christ uses to get one set free. To insist that man has no volition here is to read into the passage what is not there.

    He is only free to become a Christian once the Holy Spirit draws him. Man is unable to come to Christ until the drawing of the Spirit.

    We are not saved by our free will; we are saved by the application of Christ's death and resurrection. But, in a sense, the difference between the saved and the unsaved is their choice.

    The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. As far as inclinations go, no. But those who are not saved can and do do good deeds.

    An infinite number. Read about the chaos theory.

    Neither. Upon become servants of God, we are immediately set free from sin, for those in sin cannot serve God.

    We have to obey the call of the Holy Spirit to become a child of God.

    Depends on how we define child. This is a false analogy, as physical birth is different from spiritual birth, as Christ deliniated to Nicodemus in John 3.

    Doesn't matter. These questions are quite easy!
