Does a Christian really have free will?

This video ponders an interesting question: Do you really have free will in Christianity?

    Free Will you say? More like Circumstantial Will! Do what I say or BURN for it! This sounds more like something the mob would do!

    Today I saw your video of the jug of milk
    I agree that God is imaginary and prayer does not have influence on events.I have always known that.
    BUT : men can calm themselves by praying(or any other activity that calms their nerves)and in doing so help the body to heal itself like it always tries to do anyway
    In that perpective praying isn’t doing any arm
    I understand that you’re trying to persuade people to stop believing in fairy tales but I doubt the good result as they are brainwashed and lazy thinkers all of their lives
    Instead I think the rational people on earth should do all they can to fight crime
    The sad thing is “non-believers” don’t believe in sin either.And greed is the sin that puts the world and humanity is such a deplorable state
    That is the reason why “believers” search for comfort and the proise of “life hereafter”

    Sorry : the PROMISE of life hereafter

    Agreed on prayer as a calming effort … as I’ve practised meditation in the same way.

    The videos are entirely aimed at people who pray in this way;

    [b][i]PRAY, v. To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.

    Free Will, as asserted by the religious, means that a person is ultimately the first cause of their actions. If a person’s actions are the result of preceding causes or the result of blind chance, then that person cannot be ultimately to blame for any of their behaviours.

    Neither determinism or indeterminism is “free will”.
    Free will means the ability to choose in a way that is not the result of preceding causes nor the result of blind chance. (Anyone who can show the existence of this ability will revolutionize physics).

    Free Will seems to be more baseless religious foolishness.
