Free will is only free within what is offered and the freedom only affects the "when" and does not affect the "what" of the matter.
So I must turn left but I get to choose when I do it? The skies really the limit in your world isn't it? Basically what you're telling me is "YOU, MWC WILL SUBMIT! WE CAN DO THIS THE EASY WAY OR THE HARD WAY. IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME. NO ONE WILL RESIST." (All caps for effect...choose your own cheesy evil accent to use when reading it.) If you don't think that's what you just told me go ahead and re-read your statement.
Because we all have received the sin nature from Adam without any choice of our own, we will all partake of death when this sin nature manifects in a decision away from obedience to God. The only affect that our will has is when we will do this. Some will disobey God and choose their own life the first time they knowingly understand this choice at maybe 8 years old. Another may stay in relationship with God through willful obdedience until 12. Either way, death will eventually work in us by God's sovereign choosing of our current situation.
Now you're back on this whole idea of disobeying "god." Remember how you said that "god" only put his rules on people who entered mutually into contracts with him? In order for anyone, especially these kids, to "sin" (ie. break his rules) they would have to first be bound by those rules. This means they mutually agreed to a contract and it seems that this is done by being born. But you keep saying that it was this "Adam" that did all the wrong. (But nowhere in the bible does it state he agreed to any contract either...read Genesis...not one word mentions a contract or anything like it.)
Also, for people like myself, I walked away from said contract(s). They are now null and void. I'm not bound by anything. Most of the world isn't bound by anything. Only you accept the agreement and are bound by some rules in a book and you are expecting everyone else to follow those rules and live their lives by the contract(s) you accepted. You are being naive.
Similarly, all will eventually be saved in Christ. Our free will does not extend to the point of changing this sovereign situation. Our free will only affects the "when" of our following His predestined path for all. Some will voluntarily come under in this life and most will not do so until an age to come.
Saved? From what? Being human? That's what we are. You seem to be eager to save us from ourselves. So when we are "saved" what comes next? Describe the steps. We are not saved. Which means something. Now go through the steps. We get "saved," meaning something else and then what and so on. Describe the purpose and why it's mandatory. Sell me but don't preach (just hit the highlights).
If this second part of the equation were not true as the orthodox church believes, then the first part would indeed not be fair. If God did not take upon Himself the responisbility to save all men in Christ, decreeing all to be lost in Adam would not be righteous judgment. I still think that many of you rejected God on the basis of eternal torment and either Calvinism or Armeniusism paradoxes. But you know better than I.
Not seeing the purpose of the "christ." God spoke the world into existence. God said "Let them be saved" and they were saved and their being saved was good. All done. I did it one sentence. Why is your version of "god" so inefficient? Mine is modeled on the one at the beginning of the book and gets things done.
Actually, most people stayed with "god" longer because of the hell doctrine. It's a powerful tool to keep people in-line. When a hostage is told that an armed man is right outside the door and they will be killed if they try to escape that person is less likely to make a run for it. The hell doctrine works much the same way. Even if you don't agree with it the odds you make a run for the door is pretty low since you don't want to take that chance of getting shot yourself. It's frightening to run through that door.
The reason I do not try to covert you is I sense no desire for God at this point in your lives and I have the promise that none will be lost in the fullness of time.
The reason you do not try to convert me is that you think I will be forced to bend to your ways at some future time whether I like it or not. "Resistance is Futile" saith the lord.
If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; but if you really make them think they'll hate you. - Don Marquis
PLEASE NOTE: Just because I speak as if YHWH/jesus exist does not mean they do. It's simply for the sake of the argument.
