You said it here.What ever are you talking about them choosing to have their hearts hardened.
There's nothing in Romans 1 about people choosing to have their hearts hardened.
There's this bridge and the sign does say, Danger bridge unsafe to cross.
But yet a person did not obey the sign and went any how and went to cross the bridge and the bridge fell, That now they are without excuse.
They didn't heed the sign warning the bridge is unsafe to cross.
That's all Romans 1 is doing, is giving a warning and if people do not heed the warning given, Then they are without excuse.
God does not purposely do that to people.
It's people who chooses to do those things.
If a person is that determine to do those things, Then God gave them over to do those things.
It's like you trying to talk to a person out of doing something.
But if they are that determine to do it.
So would you keep talking, knowing it's not going to do any good or would you let them go.
You would let them go, knowing just how determine they are to do it.
