Calvinism and Free Will, Chap. 2, Defining Choice
What does it mean to have the power of choice?
To choose is to express preference for one path over another. So for choice to be possible, there must be (1) more than one path, and (2) the existence of preference. In order for preference to be expressed, there must be causation: one or more determining factors. But some would object that these determining factors beg the question, that is, the determining factors are the choices. But where did the determining factors come from? There must be a First Cause.
