Free will is the belief or the philosophical doctrine that holds that humans have the power to choose their own deeds. (The concept has also been extended on occasion to animals or artificial intelligence in computers.) Such a belief has been supported as important to moral judgment by many religious authorities and criticized as a form of individualist ideology by writers such as Spinoza and Karl Marx. As typically used, the phrase has both objective and subjective connotations, in the former case indicating the performance of an action by an agent that is not completely conditioned by antecedent factors, and in the latter case the agent's perception that the action was incepted under his or her own volition.
The principle of free will has religious, ethical, psychological and scientific implications. For example, in the religious realm, free will may imply that an omnipotent divinity does not assert its power over individual will and choices. In ethics, free will may imply that individuals can be held morally accountable for their actions. In psychology, it implies that the mind controls some of the actions of the body. In the scientific realm, free will may imply that the actions of the body, including the brain, are not wholly determined by physical causality.
The existence of freewill has been a central issue throughout the history of philosophy and science.
God creates everything. God creates each and every soul and gives us the ultimate gift of freewill. What a gift. How the soul uses this quality of freewill is the responsibility of the soul. When a soul falls from God awareness, denies God, and uses the gift of freewill selfishly, then the soul experiences increasingly negative conditions. It may appear that the soul is materially successful, outwardly they seem to be a success, but inside the soul is in torment, why else are so many so-called successful people in psychotherapy and becoming involved in spirituality?
