Concerning Free Will: Can we have Free Will under God’s complete sovereignty? (Part 1)

I have heard many times how free will and God’s sovereignty are in conflict with one another. It may be that God lets people do their own thing, as if people do things outside of His control.

What are some of the obvious differences between video games and other forms of entertainment like watching television or movies and reading novels?

Minecraft! Need I say more? In Minecraft there are no missions to accomplish, no rules, no restrictions, no guidelines, no storyline and no character development; there is virtually nothing to do in Minecraft, except for whatever you want! In fact the only “rule” (as it were) to honour is to first build your world from scratch, because you are only… Read more »
