Why does the chapter on the will of man immediately follow the one on Christ the Mediator? What is the will and where is it located? Why has God made man a willing creature and what do we lose if we weren’t? Why do some new Calvinsits struggle with the Confession’s teaching on the will? What is “natural liberty” and why is it important? What’s the difference between liberty and ability? Why is there no “absolute necessity” that determines the will to be good or evil? What books do you recommend? Join Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle as we discuss WCF 9.1:
God has endued the will of man with that natural liberty, that is neither forced, nor, by any absolute necessity of nature, determined good, or evil.
