How Could You Say No To This Man

This is one of my favorite Easter/Communion songs, though there currently isn’t an original Julie Miller version on YouTube.  This cover is quite faithful to the album version.  It’s been a couple of decades since this released, and I now see that this song combines the “irresistible grace” of Calvinism with the possibility of Arminian free will. How can a person be confronted with the unmistakable authentic love of Jesus Christ and walk away?
