Manton, Charnock, Gurnall, Burroughs, Greenhill and Boston on Striving with the Spirit

The puritans Thomas Manton, Stephen Charnock, William Gurnall, Jeremiah Burroughs, William Greenhill, and the later Thomas Boston have been excerpted on unbelievers (including the reprobate) striving against the Holy Spirit that would draw them to Christ.

These quotes demonstrate, along with the dozens of others, that God’s Revealed Will has purpose in it, namely to draw men at large to Christ, contra the hypercalvinist claims that God’s Revealed Will is static and purposeless and that God does not sincerely desire the salvation of those that He passes over in decree of Election and consequent irresistible grace.  The quotes have been added here:
