Did you choose to believe in Christ of your own free will?

Some people believe that they came to Christ on their own decision – that it was their own free will choice to choose God. I can recall the day I came to believe in Christ as my Lord and Savior. It was MY choice. But was it?

But look at what scripture says about whether we have free will to believe.

1 Corinthians 2:14

14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

Romans 8:7

7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,

John 3:19

19 This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.

 

So without God working in us, things of God make no sense – they are foolishness to us. Our minds are hostile toward God, unless God works in us. Natural men love darkness rather than Light.

How can we believe we can choose of our own “free will” if we can not understand the things of God and we are hostile toward God and we love darkness?
