Charlie, how can you say that God has a free will? Do you REALLY believe this?

God ALONE has "free" will. Free will is defined as being determined by NOTHING outside of Himself. God is completely independent of His creation. He is immutable and not subject to emotional paroxysms.

God is complete in Himself.

Do elect angels have free will? No. Do the saints in heaven have free will? No. That's because they are sealed to do only what is now good. Unless you're saying that the elect angels and the saints in heaven can change their mind and go to hell?

For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16 NKJ)
