The point should be made that the future ahead was conditional; if they did this. God knows the outcome but, yet the choice is given. There is not a person at the beginning of a choice that doesn't feel confident, inspired, capable; the choice seems obvious. As the consequences and requirements of choice develop human will follows the path of least resistance, the path of least effort. It is not that the human will does not want to do good, that it does not choose to do good, it is that it does not know how to sustain good, to expend the resource and effort to remain good. Most importantly it is the reprobate distaste of having to surrender itself to the highest good by obedience to the will of God.
