Question: It turns out that the Creator created a game for us, that is, evil, and the rules of the game by which we should play. Where is the freedom of choice here? What depends on me?
Answer: The freedom of choice is not to play by the rules of the Creator, but in the fact that you accept these rules of the game and play by them.
You may not accept them, but then you will be driven to do so by the blows of fate. Nobody says that you are free.
