You have as much free will as you want to have until you bump up against the boundary conditions set by YHWH’s Word. It is like statistical thermodynamics: and individual gas molecule can go anywhere is wants, but in the aggregate the gas laws are followed. So observation of YHWH’s creation shows us how you can have it both ways and reading His Word shows how it happens in practice.
In plain English. We either HAVE a free will or we do not. Either our life path is determined solely by our actions or it is plotted and planned from our very conception.
In simple terms the Lord has laid out rules for us to follow so we can stay in his grace and obtain the ultimate reward of spending eternity with Him. If we fail in honoring His wishes we allegedly suffer the fires of Hell. The decision is all ours and this could not possibly be more obvious.
There is no middle ground despite your attempts to have it both ways.
