Furthermore, Erasmus not only provided two contradictory definitions of free will, but the free will that he defends in his Discussion is a totally different sort, namely, the power to choose anything, not just salvation. It is interesting that Rousseau returns to nature, which he had always praised throughout his career.
He sees this lacking in Erasmus and in fact rebukes him for his excessive appeals to Jerome and the Church fathers. I'll grant your second point that legislation to tamp down on protests is very bad and should just be handled privately with colleges deciding if they reinforce the hecklers veto or not they shouldn't. Hence, inasmuch as you maintain free choice, you cancel out Christ and ruin the entire Scripture. All quotations are taken from this book unless otherwise stated. But it is this faculty that makes the long transition from the state of nature to the state of civilized society possible. This, of course, he adds, is what the devil has done to him.
Luther's chief reason for writing is, as he tells us, that Christian truth is in danger in many hearts. Salvation is both by merit and grace. From everything I know about them the last couple decades, their leadership seems to be progressive to the core. But Luther contends that there is nothing in such conditional expressions that implies free choice. It seems odd that people who have spent so much effort splitting Americans into interest groups are so stunned that the largest group of Americans might be turning into their own interest group. But the very existence of 'a void' is a real problem. It is a strange, and strangely compelling, place.
Your medicare tax dollars at work, guys. When appealing to the authority of the fathers, Erasmus shows that he is more interested in man's commentaries than in scriptural authority. But, as we shall see, having the right tools is not enough. Whereas in Europe they crack down on 'hate speech' and 'incitement' to prevent every case like this and the result is that people give the government all the power and weapons and then suddenly one day it turns on them and slaughters by the millions. On this issue the Gospel, and Reformation Christianity, stands or falls. God first acts, then man reacts. Do you go by Rafe? But he knows also that the issue is scriptural.

Such habits accumulate continuously and gradually, rather than all at once like decisions, and thus completely bypass the conscious will. Although, that does not mean that all contingent events are so in the same way. Although Leibniz occasionally uses the analogy of a machine to describe the soul, the kinds of forces and causes operative in the former are simply inapplicable to the latter. The General Will The concept of the general will, first introduced in the Discourse on Political Economy, is further developed in the Social Contract although it remains ambiguous and difficult to interpret. Also influential were the ideals of classical republicanism, which Rousseau took to be illustrative of virtues.
