Why Abrahamic Theists Reject Determinism

"In the case of Abrahamic religionists, most (except for Calvinists) have to believe in libertarian free will, the kind where, if you could rewind history at a 'decision point', with everything absolutely identical to before, you still could have done something differently from what you did. Without that ability to choose between 'right' and 'wrong,' Christianity, Judaism, and Islam collapse, for what kind of God would reward or punish you in the afterlife if you couldn’t have 'chosen otherwise'?"
