So what's so free about it?<quoted text><sigh> Have you never heard of "free will"? Were everything preordained, there would be no point in living. Look at it as a simple metaphor- You have speed limits, you have the yellow stripe down the middle of the road,exceeding the speed limit or ignoring the yellow line is a violation of the law, but you can still do it. Same thing- free will.
Free means without cost. If there is a consequence, than it is not free. The bible never mentions "free will"
And yes, I know there is a consequence for things. That's life. That's why I don't get the whole "free will" thing. I always tell people, you are confusing freedom of choice with free will.
