In light of this "scenario" what would be *your* answers to the following related questions:

1. When taking into consideration the bondage of the will, how is man able to believe the Gospel and put his faith in Christ?

2. Can a man reject the call of the Gospel and if so, how?

3. At what point does the Holy Spirit indwell a person?

1. God makes the unwilling willing. The call "Lazarus, come forth!" is a good example.

3. When people hear the Gospel in faith. Galatians 3:2.
