Lecture 4, The Loss of Liberty:
A common criticism leveled against Reformed theology is that it does not teach that man has a free will. But is that really an accurate criticism? Whose definition of free will are we using? Fortunately, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel in this debate. The great fifth-century theologian, Augustine, already dealt with this argument against Pelagius. Did Augustine teach that we lost our ability to choose? Was our free will lost in the Fall? In this message entitled “The Loss of Liberty,” Dr. Sproul teaches us the Augustinian view of free will as it is reflected in Reformed theology today.
