The concept of free will is the excuse given by apologists when faced with the cruelties of their God. They can justify their gods behavior based on the choices that we make. We could choose to follow the law, but we don't so we have chosen the painful route and all blame falls on the infidel's shoulders. There is at least one biblical concept that doesn't sit well with that position.
Throughout the Bible there is a concept of a "Book of Life". You'll find it in Exodus 32:31-33 "Moses knew of the existence of Jehovah's book of life, and realized a person's name could be removed (blotted out) from it." Psalms, Daniel, Malachi and Revelations. The concept is more or less, God wrote a book and wrote down all of the names of those that would be going to heaven. Revelations 17:8 is my favorite. "The inhabitants of the Earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not and yet will come." Come again? Did he just say, "written in the book of life from the creation of the world?" Before this world was made, it was decided whom had even a chance at going to heaven? Before I existed God knew my fate? Where might I find free will in this passage? We are talking about decisions made prior to my existence by 100s of 1000's of generations.
A likely excuse used here is that you can have your name "blotted" out. But that misses the point that only certain names were put in to begin with. If your name wasn't put in before hand, your goose is cooked. This is a New Testament passage that cites the beginning of time as a primary decision point for your salvation. John 3:16 can kiss my ass, the father made up his mind long ago. Some might wonder about which version of the Bible we are talking about, this is from the NIV, and it's just as bad in other versions. The New Living translation says "before this world was made." In all cases, our first judgement happened before the planet was even born.
How do you defend this? What kind of apologetics justifies judging people before they were born? What kind of apologetics says it's OK to send some to Hell even after they've accepted Jesus, but they didn't have their names written in the book prior to the creation of the Earth? It's like signing a contract and not noticing the fine print. You are standing before St Peter and he's praising your life, your faith, your having been fruitful, but wait.... your name was never written in the Book of Life?! And who is St Peter to question God? How's that faithy worshipy thingy working out for ya?
