Again, all those men did was reject/despise the counsel to be baptized.Yes, it does, B57!
The word used in Luke 7:30 is boulemai. It is the very sovereign will of God you are referring to.
It says, quite literally, that the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the counsel (boulemai) of God.
In spite of the boulemai of God being that they repent and/or be baptized.
Interacting with their very Creator is "being left to their own devices"?
Blatantly and obviously false.

Regardless of what specifically the boulemai of God is referring to in that verse, be it baptism or repentance, they still rejected it, b57!
Completely irrelevant to the text being discussed.
