God, Heavenly Freedom, and Evil: A Further Response To Pawl and Timpe

by Steven B. Cowan

Timothy Pawl and Kevin Timpe have offered a reply to my criticism of their libertarian solution to the so-called “Problem of Heavenly Freedom” - the problem of reconciling the impeccability of the redeemed in heaven and a libertarian view of freedom.

In this paper, I present a response to the most important points of their rebuttal. I argue that they have undermined neither my defense of the compatibilist solution to the Problem of Heavenly Freedom nor my criticisms of their libertarian solution.
