People need to understand what it means to have choice removed, from what they can do, and the difference between having it or not at all. When you are removed of choice… someone else makes the decision for you. Would you want your neighbor telling you what you could have for dinner? I don’t think so! To have the fundamental ability to decide for yourself what is right and what is not is an integral component to ‘a free society.’ This principle applies equally well to every aspect of your life, unless you have already become accustomed to having the State [country or nation you live in] do this for you. Many countries have already inculcated this very principle into practice, where the general populace simply works, contributes and the issues of choice are then determined, based on: sustainability, age, productivity or some other factor, and this is to be viewed as for the full benefit of all involved.
Granted, with choice also comes the chance you will: do it wrong, won’t do it right, make bad decisions or even worse. When it comes to the choices God says man can have… there are only two, your way or His. This is what many find to be intolerant, to think they will not be able to do the things they have and enjoy doing but these things could also be called sinful things and this is why God would not have us do them- they are hurtful to us. When it comes to the difference between the will of God and the will of man… God’s will wins every time. It is our right to choose our own destiny… if opposing God can be called that, and to realize your own self determination by its conclusion. The outcome will supersede every law man can ever put in to affect… to effect all mankind.
Let’s see what the Word of God says… and please pray before reading this, to allow the Spirit of God to open your eyes to the depth of its meaning, and may enlightenment be given unto you.
Luke 16:19-31 (King James Version)19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent . 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
If it is found where what man/woman desires is a guilt free life… one free of being told there is something wrong with what he/she is doing, and it is a life free of these pesky consequences for his/her decisions made. God’s will is what the problem is [by mans/woman’s view] and not what choices are made, and all of these without consequence. This is the cause for the objections of man/woman, to be found wrong in the eyes of God for doing sinful things and reveling in them. This sounds all well and good but if sin is all you desire in this life it will come with swift and sure effects. What hell one will endure, for an eternity, will be with full memory intact… knowing it to be from the choice one has made is the crux of it all. God does not wish it upon you… it will be you that wills it upon yourself- following earthly desires before all others. Will you change your mind and allow God to change your heart, allowing yourself the chance to see a spiritual life with God in it is more productive… knowing the guidelines of life are told in the Bible for us by God Himself. There is more freedom found with God than without Him, and it is my heart felt desire to share this truth with you so you cannot say you never knew. Now you must choose to and for your own self and for your own way or God’s… I hope it will be for life and God’s way- the way life is sustained. (D.V.)
