Justin Martyr on Free Will

“We have learned from the prophets, and we hold it to be true, that punishments, chastisements, and rewards are rendered according to the merit of each man’s actions.  Otherwise, if all things happen by fate, then nothing is in our power.  For if it is predestined that one man be good and another man evil, then the first is not deserving of praise or the other to be blamed.  Unless humans have the power of avoiding evil and choosing good by free choice, they are not accountable for their actions, whatever they may be…”
