Transcript from a conversation in a youtube video here, between a young man and Paul Washer.
Some people say, “well, what God does is He draws us to a certain point and then gives us a choice.”
There’s a problem. If God only illuminates the mind of the sinner then the more the sinner sees God, the more he’s going to hate Him.
So He not only illuminates the mind, He changes the heart.
With a new heart, for the first time you want Jesus and say, “I love Him and am irresistibly drawn to Him. I want Him more than anything.”
That’s what it is.
