Worldviews in Collision and Free Will

The Bible teaches that God has made foolish the wisdom of this world (1 Corinthians 1:20). The Bible also teaches that not just some but all treasures of wisdom and knowledge are deposited in Christ (Colossians 2:3). Accordingly, Jesus is not just the way back to the Father; he’s also the way back to understanding the Father’s world. In other words, men and women, boys and girls, don’t just need to be saved from future judgement. All people need their entire world and life view redeemed. Apart from union with Christ, one is reduced to arbitrariness and inconsistency (foolishness, the Bible calls it) in every intellectual pursuit. Mankind cannot justify the things he does know apart from submitting to the self-attesting word of God, the Bible. The last few weeks of the semester will be dedicated to the compatibility of free will and God’s determination of creaturely choices. That choices are caused and, therefore, cannot be otherwise than what God has determined does not undermine moral accountability but rather establishes it!
