By Katherin Rogers

Can humans be unfastened and accountable if there's a God? Anselm of Canterbury, the 1st Christian thinker to suggest that humans have a truly strong unfastened will, bargains doable solutions to questions that have plagued spiritual humans for no less than thousand years: If divine grace can't be merited and is critical to avoid wasting fallen humanity, how can there be any decisive function for person unfastened option to play? If God is familiar with this present day what you will decide upon the next day to come, then while the following day comes you need to select what God foreknew, so how can your selection be loose? If people should have the choice to choose from stable and evil to be able to be morally liable, needs to God be ready to select evil? Anselm solutions those questions with a cosmopolitan thought of unfastened will which defends either human freedom and the sovereignty and goodness of God.
