    Yes, just not in the sense that He magically (for lack of a better word) induced Pharaoh's heart to harden.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Indeed, God may have very well used means to bring about this result...

    After looking at it further...I disagree with you. The whole context is dealing exactly with that issue. The question Paul is asking and answering is found in verse 6...has the Word of God failed? Answer is:
    God's salvation is for all those that respond in faith. Reread Rom. 9:30 - 32. The gentiles obtain righteousness by faith. Jews miss it by trying to obtain it by the Law. If the way you respond to God is not synergistic then, I'm not sure what is.
