Floating on Tiptoes

One of the core doctrinal distinctives of many modern-day evangelicals is that the Holy Spirit would never unilaterally come in a change people’s hearts against their will. But this is an assumed conviction which arises only from human reasoning or extra-biblical philosophy because none can point to anywhere in Scripture that would give authority to such an idea. Rather, the Bible teaches that the human will is always captive to sin and opposed to God such that no one would ever willingly follow Christ unless God, in His great mercy, supernaturally intervened to change the natural disposition of this heart (2 Tim. 2:26; Rom 3:11-18; 1 Cor 2:14; Deut 30:6; Ezek 36: 26; John 3:1-8; 6:63-65; Eph 2:1, 5). Man would never agree to this. But when he is given a new heart, he willingly follows the Savior.
