Argument from free will

From Iron Chariots Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
"Humans experience ourselves and the world in a manner that is difficult to explain on naturalistic atheism or impersonal deism or pantheism. The best explanation for our experience is in our being created in the image of a personal God. [...] The most obvious instance of this is our human ability to make a decision and act on it. You and I have a measure of free will. [1]"
