Desire and Ability

An ability to believe the gospel would have to include a desire to believe the gospel since the sinner’s inability results from his unwillingness. If all sinners possess, in a state of sinful nature, the ability to believe the gospel or if through prevenient grace all are at some point given that ability, would it not be correct to assume that all sinners also have a desire to believe the gospel including all that repentance and faith entail?

It follows, then, that if not all sinners desire to believe, and they obviously do not, then not all sinners have the ability.

    Whew. Just finally figure out this modern technology and got my own wordpress blog started. I will, therefore, ask your advice. What head within Reformed Theology should I blog upon first? I know whatever I choose, I will blow away the competition. Nobody can compete with Calvin.

    Soli Deo Gloria
