I Wish Man Didnít Have Freewill!

Introduction. (Deuteronomy 30:11-20) Many in the religious world believe that man does not have the freewill to choose their behavior.

Even among those who would not count themselves as religious there is the belief that certain tendencies cannot be resist either due to genetics, culture or environment. There are a number of reasons we might wish that new true.

I. If man didnít have freewill...

  1. Man wouldn't feel guilty when he has done wrong (Isaiah 30:8-11).
  2. It wouldnít be manís fault if he sinned (I Corinthians 10:13).
  3. Souls wouldnít be lost because we failed to teach them (Mark 16:15,16).
  4. Those who had been taught couldnít fall away (I Timothy 4:16; Galatians 6:1).
The fact of the matter is that man does have freewill. Thus...

II. Since man does have freewill...

  1. He should feel guilt when he has done wrong (II Corinthians 7:8-10).
  2. It is manís fault when he sins (James 1: 13-15; Ezekiel 18: 20).
  3. Souls are lost when we fail to teach them (Romans 10: 14-17; Ezekiel 3:17-19).
  4. People do fall away who have been taught (Acts 1:15-26).

Conclusion. God has given man freewill so that we might chose on our own to serve him (Acts 17: 24-27). The question is will we make this choice?
