    Default New thread on FREE WILL

    If there is no FREE WILL then what guides our choices; because some JPP members feel that our lives are scripted?

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    Protestantism or Calvinism belongs to the Reformed tradition of Protestantism. ... Today, this term also means the doctrines and practices of the Reformed churches, of which Calvin was an early leader, and the system is perhaps best known for its doctrines of predestination


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvinism


    Reformed theologians teach that sin so affects human nature that they are unable even to exercise faith in Christ by their own will. While people are said to retain will, in that they willfully sin, they are unable not to sin because of the corruption of their nature due to original sin. Reformed Christians believe that God predestined some people to be saved and others were predestined to eternal damnation

    If your version of your god is that he is omniscient, omnipotent and all the other all-powerful words, then your god already knows your “choices”. Only an idiot would believe that to be free will.

    Your reply is not an answer to my OP.

    Are you unable to address it or are you just worried about how your reply will appear.

    I've addressed the myth of free will twice before. Both times you ignored the evidence, because you want to believe in free will. Now you are starting a new thread, seemingly to convince other people (but really yourself) that free will is real.
