Will or no Will-that is mans question

In the movie Batman:Beginnings, there is phrase that is said, "your training is nothing, the will is everything..." Over-all I think it's a good film, but I take issue with some of the underlining philosophies of the movie. The philosophy is reveled in the phrase above, and that is that man's will is everything. That man move's/creates his own destiny by some unseen force within himself. In this case Brus Wayne's ability to fight and survive.

Yet the Bible doesn't teach that man's will is everything, it is God's will that cannot be thwarted. It is God who works all things according to the counsel of his will...not mans. Mans will is free in one direction, and that direction is to sin. Sin brings the wrath of God. Man left to himself will die under the wrath of God, which plays out in hell for eternity. Unless the Spirit blows in your direction, and unless God opens your heart...you are lost.
