FREE  WILL  VERSUS DEMONIC  DOMINATION

 

(Greek philosophy was based on the free will of man,

which was not subject to the control of gods or demons.)

 

It is in the will alone that good and evil lie.  No one, therefore, is my master, either to procure me any good or to involve me in any evil; but I alone have the disposal of myself with regard to these things.
