Problems With Free Will

We continue to look at problems with free will in light of the explanation it supposedly gives Christians when it comes to answering the problem of evil.

We see why the Reformed position rejects parts of libertarian free will in exchange for soft determinism. Libertarian free will undermines the doctrine of depravity, who God is, what Heaven is, who Satan is, and actually seems to undermine the Trinity. On top of that, the presentation of free will in that form seems to make all decisions arbitrary – which seems like a problem.

And of course, there’s a Star Trek V reference. But we don’t answer why God would need a spaceship.
