[quote:Anonymous Coward 1476767:MV8xNzgwNjc2XzI5NzAzNTAzXzMwQkYzMkFD] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1554293:MV8xNzgwNjc2XzI5Njk4NzI3XzE3MkQ3NjhD] [b][color=red]This is a complicated issue, but we must not ignore God's sovereignty. Free will has become a god to mankind, and is also, a false doctrine. Men and women can't face the fact that God is working out his plan as a master orchestrator. The scriptures are full of examples, and can be seen easily by those who want to know. Do you think it was Gods will that Moses go into the wilderness thus yrs later, meeting God in the burning bush? How did Moses find himself in the desert, away from the palaces of Egypt? It was because he murdered a man. What did it take to have Moses, and that man he murdered, in the same location, and at the same time? You think free will lined this all up? Foolishness. How about Samson, notice the reply from his father when Samson asked for him to get that women for him, and notice below that, it says (paraphrase) "for God had put that desire in Samson, in order to gain a way to judge the pharisees. Jesus was asked about his death, and he replied that he could ask the father and the father would send multitudes of angels to save him, but Jesus refused to do so. Jesus says for this reason came I into the world. Did Jesus have free will. I say men are moved by God. Bible (Scriptures) say so. No fall in the garden, no Jesus, no marriage supper of the lamb, no heaven waiting for us. It was and is all a plan of God.....Also who is saved? "Those destined to salvation". God draws, and shows mercy to those he desires to show mercy to...He puts it in your heart to desire him, to have faith, ETC...It is God's choice, we must be "OK" with his sovereignty. If you can see it this way, and trust him even if he were to send you to hell, then you like Job, can say you trust him.[/color][/b] [/quote] [/quote]
"“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent forth his Son into the world, not for him to judge the world, but for the world to be saved through him. 18 He that exercises faith in him is not to be judged. He that does not exercise faith has been judged already, because he has not exercised faith in the name of the only-begotten Son of God. 19 Now this is the basis for judgment, that the light has come into the world but men have loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. 20 For he that practices vile things hates the light and does not come to the light, in order that his works may not be reproved. 21 But he that does what is true comes to the light, in order that his works may be made manifest as having been worked in harmony with God.”
