Cocky fella, aren’t you? What I stated was actually just simply put. You’re either dead to sin or dead in sin. As Paul states: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 - Any “choice” or freewill we have is simply sin living in us. If Christ is truly Lord, then only sin would say like Peter: “Not so Lord!” We either live the resurrected life or we live the sinful life. All those scriptures you stated haven’t really proven much, except that you know how to quote scripture. Being chosen or predestined before the world was created doesn’t leave much room for freewill, unless you choose to look at it from the viewpoint that we DO have freewill to sin or to submit to God - in which case, I’ll give you that. But at the end of the day, you’re either a slave to sin or a slave to God, which leaves no room for freewill. I will either do the bidding of sin and the flesh and be it’s slave or I will do the bidding of the Lord.
