. . . Jonathan Edwards is considered one of America's most important and original philosophical theologians   His polemic work Freedom of the Will refutes the notion that humans have complete free will over the choices they make.  Instead, Edwards claims that will is driven by human desire.  In Edwards' beliefs, people are sinners at heart.  They do not naturally follow God's wish for their future.  However, the preacher says that there is a way for humans to "regain" their will; they must wholly believe in God's path for them.  Understanding God's plans and accepting them allows someone to choose their own way.  They can make a conscious effort to choose the best path for their life.
