Well stated and totally agreeable. Every knee will bow and tongue confess, but it does not happen for the unbelievers in an instant at judgement. There is another age waiting for them before they will be saved.
"His evil nature is in bondage to his will"? How can that possibly be? Man cannot possibly select to be in his evil nature or his good and righteous nature at the simple twitching of his will. It's hard enough to choose whether to get up in the morning sometimes. "There is none righteous", "There is none good but God" has said enough that his will is EVIL! Utterly depraved. Utterly sad history of humanity of nothing but sin, war, and death at all different levels of severity. Selecting evil over good, selfishness over love, seems a bit biased in society at the moment. And the will of man is free? Free from what? Free from sin? Free from spiritual death? Free from bondage and decay? Free from God?
