Free Will - continued
Yesterday I posted about Free Will and had some miscellaneous thoughts that I really couldn't fit into the article. So I will put them out here.
Free will apparently means we can choose to do good or evil. But if that free will is used to abuse, rape or murder another human being where is the victim's free will? Why does one person's free will evil have to harm another? What kind of perfect divine plan is that?
Christopher Hitichens questions "How can it be free will when God has to give it to you?" You have to have a free will, you have no choice. It is quite circular.
There was a study done not too long ago where scientist said they found the belief gene. Not sure it is entirely true. But what if? Some people believe easily and they cannot understand those who don't believe and visa versa. Perhaps John Calvin is right then. We are simply His toys for His greater glory. Amen and Amen.
