The 1689 on Free Will (9.1-3)

Those with dark hearts can skip to the 5:00 mark to bypass the banter. Today the guys step into Chapter 9 of the 1689 Confession to talk about “free will.” How should we think of the will of mankind? In what ways is it free or bound? Can sinners do good? And how should this doctrine impact our hearts and how we evangelize?
