Human beings are free to do whatever they want—but not with impunity. Today, R.C. Sproul exposes where the limit of our free will lies.
We have free will in the sense that we have the power to do what we want. We don’t have free will in the sense that we have the power to do what we want with impunity. Because over above my free will always stands the sovereign authority and the power of almighty God. If your anthropology makes man sovereign, your anthropology is not Christian. You can have “man is free,” but never “autonomous.” Remember that God is free and His freedom is a higher freedom than my freedom. I am free only within the limitations of God’s freedom.
