I object to the purpose theists ascribe to free will, namely to allow us to make a choice about following God. I don’t think that God actually offers us a free choice in this matter, but a strongly coerced one. However, what disturbs me further is the idea that once a Christian has used her free will to choose God, she is expected to seek God’s will in all she does (even Jesus himself, before his death, is supposed to have said to God “not what I want, but what you want”).
I have often heard the will of the individual Christian being berated as an inherently selfish, deeply flawed source of guidance, desperately in need of being set straight by aligning itself with the will of God. How odd, then, that God trusts us to use our will to choose him in the first place.
