Paul wrote in Romans 7:19;"For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do
this I keep on doing.
So is there such a thing as free will, or are we all driven by our nature (our genes),
our nurture or both? Or perhaps, everything has been predestined for us and what will be will be?
Me? I don't think that I have much freewill. We are all driven by forces outside of our control.
I go to work each day because I have to put food on the table. It's not that I dislike my job, quite the opposite in fact
but it's probably not I would choose to do . We live where we do because we had to be close to my wife's ageing parents before
they died, and now we have kids, they want to be close to their friends, school, college, etc.
There are a few people who totally live their lives as they please but I have a suspicion that these people are not
always the happiest of people and certainly have often caused much anxiety and pain to those they become close to.
Most of us go with the flow and spend our lives 'going with the flow'.
