With free will no man can be saved. In the Garden of Eden mankind decided to ignore God's directive to not eat from the 'Tree of the Knowledge of Good and of Evil and so were banished from God's presence in the Garden. Today believing we have the ability to out-think God iin coming to Salvation is resurrecting this Garden scene.

Correction in the typing of my last sentence, sorry: "...He has made it abundantly clear that there are consequences for the good or for the bad involved in those choices".

I have studied the original teachings of John Calvin, and what is taught as Calvinism is actually an interpretation by later students of Calvinism that Calvin never made. What Calvin taught is that God, the Creator of humanity, is Sovereign and will always have the last say about the outcome of any person's life. That was changed erroneously to say that God ignores free human choice and decides arbitrarily who will be evil and damned to Hell and who will be righteous and destined for Heaven. Studied in context, it is totally incorrect to state that humans have no free choice in their relationship with God. God is Sovereign, now and always, and will have the final say; but He has given and always will give humans free choice to accept or reject Him in their lives, though He has made it abundantly clear that are are consequences for the good or for the bad involved in those choices.

They want to blame God for every evil they did - again. The way natural humans fall into wrong attitudes are truly boundless.
