Question: Someone said we don't have free will and quoted scripture to support this. Did God give us free will? Do we have free will or not?

Answer: When God told Adam, 'Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die,' He was telling all of Adam's descendants that salvation would depend on the choices we make. Yes, we all have a free will. We can all choose to submit to God and obey Him, and we can all choose to ignore Him and go our own way.
