We reviewed who is the cause of salvation. It is God alone. Man does not want to repent. He is bound to his fallen nature and will not turn to God on his own. Discussion occurred on the universal idea that our will is bound to something else, resulting in comments such as "it was meant to be". Also discussed: God is immutable but also merciful, God is present in all places and all things even Hell. These are concepts we wrestle with. Man-made laws that curb in outward actions but do not change the heart conclude this session.
