I'm not sure if this is slightly off-topic to exclude god from the equation. I kind of feel that any lack of free will is unconsciously self-imposed. It seems to be human nature to live our lives rigidly enforcing our own beliefs. We can experience brief interludes of lucidity when our current belief system breaks down but it is soon replaced by something equally as rigid and we are apt to outrageous levels of self-deception and mental gymnastics in order to conform any new information to our world view.

My stepmom was talking about her son, I guess my stepbrother, about the devil having control over his life. This control that the devil has over him has put him into jail twice now. It just really irks me when the devil tells me to run from the police, ditch the car, and proceed running on foot. I need Jesus in my life to set me straight. That's what I need. Weeks later I would end up in jail again. It just really irks me when the devil tells me to take drugs. I need Jesus in my life to set me straight. That's what I need.

my friend, pray daily, and always think happy thoughts. just positive ones. the more you think of the devil, the more it will control you. but oppositely, the more you think of Jesus, the more He will control your life towards the good path so always pray hard.

God can create a space within itself where the illusion of free will can take place.
