Is free will an illusion?
Our "choice" is that we either follow God or we do not follow God. However, God has clearly chosen some people to be saved and some to not be saved:
Matthew 22:14 (NIV) For many are invited, but few are chosen.
Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
Ephesians 1:5 (NIV) he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will
But, if God chose us to either be saved or not saved, do we have free will in choosing to follow him?
