ok….this is for all the people who have spent more time with Theology than I have.
How does Calvin’s concept of “total depravity” jive with the Augustinian concept of free will? Now I must confess that I have not read all everything of Augustine, so maybe it’s in something that I haven’t read. And I haven’t read all of the Institutes either, so maybe I’m not understanding total depravity the way I should. That said, if one believes that humans are totally depraved, doesn’t that eliminate free will?
