I second RitterSport, KidCharlemagne's definition of free will is in fact a compatibilist's definition. It would appear that KidCharlemagne is actually soliciting libertarians such as Tolstoy (if you reached the very end of War and Peace); he was thoroughly religious but I don't remember that coming into his discussion of free will and necessitarianism. God may have been mentioned in passing but it did not form a major part of his argument.
