1 Sam 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. The New Covenant Jer 31:31,33,34 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Hebrews 8:10-12 says the same thing. In either Hebrews 8 or Jeremiah 31 passages of the new covenant does anyone remotely see any evidence of there being free will toward those to whom the covenant is to be made with? Is the nature of free will to want to rule one self or to allow God to rule over you? Is it possible and or likely thet the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil was? Free Will?
