As a Calvinist let me say, "That's a lot of bunk."
This is not what Calvinists believe. God does not make men into robots that worship Him any more than He made the writers of Scripture into robots when they wrote their respective books. As we know, Scripture was inspired in such a way that the Prophets and Apostles wrote in such a way that they maintained their own identities and styles, wrote what they meant to write, but with the Holy Spirit as a guide who made them infallible as they wrote. They were not always infallible, but only when they wrote Scripture.
But this article is not about inspiration. It's about free will. So what does inspiration have to do with free will? A lot, I think. It is evident, even in the Arminian's mind, that this is a situation (inspiration) where God works in such a way to provide an intended result without making men into robots.
This is similar to what Calvinists believe about free will. God never saves anyone against their will. This the Calvinist believes. But the Calvinist also believes that no one is willing to be saved. We are all headed the opposite direction. We are living in a state of condemnation and trudging along the path to make that condemnation secure. Obviously, something must happen. But before we get to that, let me highlight the condition of man as revealed in Scripture.
as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one." "Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive." "The venom of asps is under their lips." "Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness." "Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known.", "There is no fear of God before their eyes." (Rom 3:10-18)
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-- among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Eph 2:1-3)
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1Co 6:9-10)
Those three passages do not leave much hope, do they? But we know that there is hope. What hope is this? Is it a hope that we are somehow smarter than the rest of humanity and able to conclude that if we don't do better we will go to hell? Or is it that we are better than the rest of humanity and have more self-control? Is it that we can recognize a good offer when we see it?
None of these are the right answers. Here is what the Bible says:
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved-- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Eph 2:4-9)
Even when we were dead, God made us alive. Problem resolved. God did it. How did He do it? Did He overpower us, stick a gun to our heads and say, "You better repent!" No, He made us alive. When we were in our lost condition, dead to righteousness, God sent the Gospel, and through the Gospel the Spirit came and breathed new life into us. We were reborn. Born with a new nature. Born with a new set of 'want tos'. We were recreated in a split second and in that split second we wanted to believe and repent. We were willing. Did we change into another person? No, we have the same bodies, the same mannerisms, the same green eyes and brown hair, but we have changed. We have changed masters. We have changed within. We hate sin, love God, we do not think on evil, but on that which is good, we do not rebel against Christ, but run to Him and embrace Him as a friend. We changed natures. Better put, God changed our natures.
We were reborn and willingly turned to Christ from our sins. The unwilling believer does not exist. The robot-man does not exist. Only a new creation.
