Perhaps this is the wishful thinking your organization holds. As with many other traditions it promotes, this view does not comport with the Scriptures.
Prov. 21:1 "The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes.
Prov. 16:9 "The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.
There is nothing uncontrolled in the universe...
Prov. 16:33 "The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord.
Free will? Sorry. There are probably 100 more passages where free will is debunked. But, it requires one to read the text without the organizational glasses on. We have a God who really is God. Maybe the RCC should reconsider the god they worship...if they can.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Thanks.
