In my discussions with theists, I often get the argument that we enjoy free will for obeying God or not.
God desires us to “choose” to love and obey him, while in reality, it is a command.
To Adam he said “but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:17).
Also Jesus said that the first commandment was that “You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.”
(For a comparative, http://biblehub.com/matthew/22-37.htm )
To say there is free will here is clearly a definition fallacy!
“Do or die” is not a choice!
Again, death is a punishment and consequence of disobeying — not a choice.
A “choice” must have an alternative — and clearly, God is not giving anyone an alternative.
It’s one way, or death.
It’s not this apple or that apple, but this apple or die!
In plain and correct english, we call this an “ultimatum”.
Certainly not a choice by any stretch of the imagination.
I do not know how one can dispute this in earnest.
