The Early Church Fathers
and Free-Will:

THEOPHILUS of Antioch (2nd century)

by Jacques More

To Autolycus XXVII

"For God made man free, and with power over himself . . . now God vouchsafes to him as a gift through His own philanthropy and pity, when men obey Him. For as man, disobeying, drew death on himself; so, obeying the will of God, he who desires is able to procure for himself life everlasting."
