Does God have free will?
An agnostic friend and I had a conversation the other day on whether God has free will. During our conversation, he made a few points I was unable to answer at the time. Here are a few of them. Can you respond to them?
1. “He cannot be omnipotent and have free will.”
2. “He cannot bestow free will upon man to say man has a choice between good and evil, while at the same time not have the ability to choose evil himself.”
3. “He can’t allow the absence of good if His Goodness is his nature. He wouldn’t allow it.”
