If “free will” exists, it does not seem to be able to help men to salvation because it still leaves them under the wrath of God.”

“If all men have a “free will” and all men are guilty and condemned, then this supposed “free will” is powerless to bring them to faith in Christ. So, their will is not free after all.”

“free will” is nothing but a slave of sin, death, and Satan. Such “freedom” is no freedom at all.”

“No matter how much goodness men may naturally achieve, this is not the same thing as the knowledge of God. The most excellent thing about men is their reason and their will, but it has to be acknowledged that this noblest part is corrupt.”

All men without exception are as ignorant of the fact of their guilty unbelief as they are ignorant of Christ Himself. The guilt of unbelief has to be revealed to them by the Holy Spirit.”

“If men were able in the slightest degree to try to move in God’s direction, there would be no need for God to save them.”

“Man’s will, left to itself, is powerless to do anything about coming to Christ for salvation. Even the very word of the Gospel is heard in vain, unless the Father Himself speaks to the heart and draws us to Christ.”

“By “free will,” not one person can be saved. But by free grace, many will be saved.”
