free indeed

“The Bible teaches that God is completely in control of what happens in history and yet he exercises that control in such a way that human beings are responsible for their freely chosen actions and the results of those actions. Human freedom and God’s direction of historical events are therefore completely compatible. To put it most practically and vividly — if a man robs a bank, that moral evil is fully his responsibility, though it also is part of God’s plan.

…God’s plan works through our choices, not around or despite them.”

~ Timothy Keller, Walking with God through Pain and Suffering
