A look at what Luther called “the hinge upon which the whole [Reformation] turns,” the subject of “free will.” This message provides an exposition of 1 Peter 1:3 and a look at what Scripture says regarding the nature of man’s will. Is it free? Is salvation a matter of man’s own independent choosing, or is salvation the work of God?
If you would like further reading on that subject we would recommend these:
