AbstractFreedom of the will in Theology of Eastern Fathers of the Church is greater than the freedom of the will of the Catholic theology, in two ways: First, at the beginning of faith,Eastern Fathers of the Church emphasize the Synergy and necessity of human will's choice, and Western theology highlighted the decisiveness of God's grace under the doctrine of Original Sin. Secondly, Eastern Fathers of the Church believe that the essence of Spiritual practice is human beings receiving God's grace, and for Western theologians the Spiritual practice is Spiritualists experiencing their sins and imitating the example of Christ obeying the Will of God. There are four sematic differences between the concept of freedom of the Orthodox Church and the common concept of freedom: in subject, in context, in implication and in intent.
