Is Salvation A “Free Will Choice”?

In light of my recent articles on monergism and the work of the Holy Spirit in God’s free gift of salvation, my brother Job over at Jesus Christology penned an excellent article:

Was The Old Covenant A Free Will Covenant Or An Election – Predestination Covenant?

Arminian (or free will) Christians regard the new covenant to be based on a free will choice of salvation; that people choose Jesus Christ. I wonder: is there evidence that the old covenant was one of free will? For instance, did Israel choose God, or did God choose Israel? Did God choose the priests (who had to come from the line of Levi) or did the priests choose their occupation? Did God choose the kings (first Saul and then David and his line) or did they take the initiative?

    Thanks. I have another one up on this topic too. Turns out that Jacobus Arminius did not invent Arminianism. He got his views from someone else (a Roman Catholic!), and this link gives some of the reasons why Arminius was chosen to represent this doctrine rather than the fellow who actually invented it! Arminius only studied this fellow’s writings and decided that he agreed with him.
