I know, O Lord, that a man’s way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.

Any Arminians out there want to defend how the Scripture supposedly teaches autonomous free will in light of this Scripture? At best, they can argue what John Cassian did in Conference 13 that God obviously can change the volition of some people, He just does not do it to everyone. He understood that autonomous free will is impossible to argue from the Scriptures.
