I don't go to church much at all anymore, but I do have a philosophy in life that mirrors a Christian POV in a way. Anyway, for me freewill always meant to do as you will or to do God's will. Simple as that. As far as Christians are concerned, we all share the same pre-destiny of an afterlife if you believe in that stuff, as well as an Apocalyptic end as portrayed in the book of Revelations.
