Wrong, dead wrong.
This is at the heart of false christendom in this country.
And very likely why God is condemning this country today.
Man DOES NOT have a free will.
Man CANNOT do righteousness, which is what God demands.
The problem with prideful self-righteous people in America is that they suppose they have followed some formula for salvation that is pleasing to God. For the so-called evangelicals it is asking Jesus into their hearts. Where is that found in Scripture? For the Roman Catholic it is keeping the so-called sacraments.
The Lord Jesus Christ alone worked out the only righteousness that holy God has accepted or will ever accept.
He did it for His people, His elect.
