So I have discovered something here in the jungles of Uganda, outside of the awesome chimps who live in the forest here. I have noticed God alot and have had a many of revelation since I have been here and heres what I was thinking.
Freewill isn’t free at all just like the freedom we uphold in the great country of the USA. That idea although not really that revolutionary is the cornerstone of my point in this blog installment
See God gave us freewill but it was with a heavy burden that He did. He wanted his people to love Him but He needed to let them choose for themselves. In this universe there lay a foundation of beginning and of end and all things created were by design and that designer is God.
Coming to the point now…..
By giving us freewill He allowed us to have love because without the will to choose God we would not have the capacity of love and would be a collective group of God followers without a choice in the matter….
Heres where my revelation came!
Without freewill we are all equal in that we all would have the same goal and purpose to follow God. With free will He has given us love but not equality as some of us choose to believe and others do not. It is true God loves us all equally but he sets His people aside.
life isn’t a fight for equality but for the opportunity to be equal and using the love He gave us through freewill helps us to determine the value and equality of life from person to person.
So in conclusion
Freewill promotes love and only gives the opportunity of equality
No Freewill promotes equality and no opportunity to experience love
heres some verses I have found helpful
If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.”
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
2 Cor. 9:7
“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
thank you for trying to follow this crazy point
oh and predestination is a funny joke to me
