I suspect, without any evidence at all, that it comes from Christianity.

Does God have free will? Either God set things up the way He did for a
reason, in which case He
to cause and effect just as we are, or he
in which case His behavior is random rather like the decay of a Uranium
atom. Where does free will enter into this?

I don't know if I believe in free will or not because I have no idea what
the term means.
I understand what "will" means, I want to do some thing and don't want to
do other things, and my likes and dislikes are a function of both the
state of my brain and the state of the environment; but I don't know the
meaning of "free will"
