Objective: The objective of this argument is to exalt the will of God in comparison to the will of man to the glory of God. That God may be glorified and increased while man is humbled and decreased. To provoke the human mind to realize that God is supreme over all of existence including the immaterial things such as thought or will; using a logical form of argument known as the Socratic Method. As a result it serves that man may realize how utterly and desperate the sinful will of man is dependent on the sovereign, supreme, fair, merciful, graceful, loving, and holy will of God.

 

  1. Is the will of man free? Yes
  2. Can man choose to do whatever he wills to do? Yes/No
  3. Is the will of God free? Yes
  4. Can God choose to do whatever He wills to do? Yes
  5. Is the will of man subject to the will of God? Yes
  6. Is the will of God subject to anything? No
  7. Am I correct in stating then that, there is no will superior to the will of God? Yes
  8. Am I correct in stating then that, the will of man is inferior to the will of God? Yes
  9. Then since God has a free will, and He can choose to do whatever He wills, and His will is not subject to anything else because His will is superior than anything in existence; then the true definition of free will is to be absolutely superior without any subjugation to anything existing with the ability to do whatever the will desires. Does this definition coincide with the premises written above? Yes
  10. Then since the claim is that man has a free will but man’s will is inferior and subject to a superior will; man cannot choose to do whatever his will desires because of the mere possibility of a superior will who man is subject to may check and balance what man chooses to do according to the superior will of God.
  11. Does man have a free will? No
  12. Does man have a will? Yes, but it is not free because man is not God.
  • Man does have a will with the maximal efficient ability to choose left or right.
  • Man does not have a will with the maximal efficient ability to choose wrong or right.
  • If you do claim to have a will with the maximal efficient ability to choose wrong or right, then stop sinning for the rest of your life.
