RE: "Free will"
Free will means nothing to someone who knows exactly how everything will play out in the end. Especially if they are omnipotent and have sets of laws that they demand their creation follow, everything that happens happens because they wanted it to, otherwise they would had changed it which they already knew they would had changed it, but they don't have to change it because its already going to happen that way anyway from the beginning.

You cannot have a true free will and a god who is both omnipotent and omniscient at the same time. Besides, we might even have free will anyway since our bodies and brains are still subject to the laws of physics which can take place before we become actively aware of our own thoughts or choices.

My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

None of those are the result of man's choice. They are all up to "god".

Ask them about Moses and Pharaoh. Pharaoh changed his mind how many times and god "hardened Pharaoh's heart". Free Will?

Predestination and free will are entirely contradictory. The idea of a "sacred mystery" means theologians haven't been smart enough to figure out an acceptable answer.

How is the desperate situation of a refugee mother with a starving infant the result of either the infant's or her "free will" ?
That probably comes under the category of "Visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children unto the third and forth generation" Blame it on your daddy or grand father or even his daddy!
