What does "free will" mean to you?
Here is the way I understand it:
If person Q having made choice X at time T in circumstances C, could have chosen not-X at time T in circumstances C, then he has free will.
Great question Timios. What does Free Will mean to me?
Firstly, if Father "willed" everything that we know, then free or not, I cannot. Now if "will" means "choice" then arguably this is not nearly as free as we pretend it is. Case in point: how many times has a book, movie, music or even a dish been dismissed because something in our past caused not even a chance. How free is that? Especially, if sometime in the future, what ever it is, is tried and it is Loved!!
Also, on a very pragmatic level. I can choose to jump 18ft high or hold my breath for 20mins, but my "choice" has constraints that I cannot overcome. Even when we make choices through out the day, most fall within our comfort zone.
But Jesus taught through Spirit and as such if one looks at freedom through the eyes of spirit, who really wants to be free??? Don't we all want to be One with Father and all else? I do
Just my thoughts,
