Free will

Looks like it's just you and me, Lou.

What does 'free will' mean?

Does it mean that there are no excuses? that there is no allowance made for those who make the wrong choice?

I understand that life after death will happen or not in spite of my lack of desire for it.

But there's an ethical issue here, which I can imagine lots of those in hell raising, and quite a few in the other place too.

Having created this world and set it up for judgement, God gets to condemn everone who did not make the right free choice to the Lake of Fire for eternity, and it all hinges on whether we accept Jesus as our saviour.

Humans!

But it gets better. Was it Aquinas who said that the keenest pleasures of the saved would be to watch the torments of the damned?

Fun stuff.
