- Arminianism contends "that obedient free will is always dependent upon God's free grace; and disobedient free will upon God's ethical wrath. Clearly free-will, in the present state of mankind, cannot be understood but there must be a measure of free-will supernaturally restored to every man,or Jesus would noyt have continually used the conjunction "if". This together with that divine light which enlightens every man that comes into the world.
- Hello, I understand free will as a gift of God. But I do see this in a little different light. I rather say that I have "free choice". (Not the same as free will.) My reason is that if it's a will, it's not free. If it's free, it's not a will. In other words, our will is always bent on something. No such thing as a neutral will, so it cannot be free by default and definition. Therefore, our choices are always done in a context, never in a vacuum. As I can appreciate this teaching, I see that free choice is the excercise of the will according to a desire, bent, inclination and context. But free will seems to be difficult for me to define. I hope I made sense. Blessings. . . Eis Cristos Al Sosa
