Free Will And Religion



The bible says that God gave humanity free will, but does the idea of religion and free will really go together?
If a God exists who has a divine plan do we really have free will or is it just an illusion? Do we really have control over our lives if there is a higher power in charge?

To add to this, if this God is all knowing and has a divine plan, what is the use in praying for help?


I think praying for God’s help shows respect for The Lord.


I like to think of it where free will means you get to choose one path among infinite paths (all of which the omnipotent God knows about).
