Do Christians have a free will? Hear discussion on what good people are able and unable to accomplish, and whether people have the ability to overcome evil by their own will-power. Also, consider how we think about charitable unbelievers and if God really hates their “good deeds.” Finally, plug the Word and Sacraments into the conversation to think about how the nature of our will emphasizes our need to receive Christ and His Word.
Rev. Matt Wurm, pastor of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Brookings, South Dakota, joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss Free Will in Article XVIII of the Augsburg Confession.
