Will we have free will in heaven? Or, as one of our listeners worded it very well, “On the new earth after judgment will we still have free will? If so, would there ever be a danger of rebelling again?”
Whether you put it in terms of “free will in heaven” or, “free will in the new heavens and new earth,” we believe this Bible study will be helpful.
Wes and Travis discuss, what is free will? To what extent do we have free will right now? Are we really able to be and do everything we want? But they primarily discuss why people struggle with sin in the first place. Is free will the only reason we sin or is there more to it? Is it possible to have free will and not sin?
One of the primary passages discussed in today’s Bible study is Romans 7:9-25, in which Paul discusses why people struggle with sin in the flesh. He wrote, “For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.” What does this passage have to do with free will now and free will in eternity?
We hope you enjoy this Bible study.
