this is a very interesting distinction that I had never thought of. How often is the phrase "free will" invoked to describe the impulse to do something positive?
Very silly. Of course we have the free will to do good things.
Well, I don't know about silly - maybe even the fact of free will is silly. After all, if god knows already who is going to heaven and who to hell and he has all our actions 'written in his book' then we are actually far from possessing free will but, in fact, only the illusion of free will.
Of course, your god, knowing just how everyone will act in the world knows who will make good or bad choices using their 'free will' - he would have know this even before he populated the world. It seems as though his choices were hardly to the good of our race given the religious wars over the centuries.
So even though people, according to you, have free will in their actions it seems that even the religious are not that good with their free will as theirs and industry set up to help people removed their sin caused by free will actions. Are you seriously suggesting that your god made good choices?
