In your view of human freedom do people ever truly have real multiple options that they chose from or are they always enslaved by their nature to one option and moved toward a good option by the grace of God being in a sense acted upon them? Is it valid, in your opinion, to see the unregenerate as stuck in sinful nature away from God waiting for God’s move of grace but that the regenerate are growing into a greater sense of freedom where they truly have options within their nature and God is not directing every move of their life through the giving and withholding of grace? I hope my question is clear enough that you get what I’m asking.

The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
