    recovering from religious and spiritual addictions, after sampling the worlds major religions including new age, i became a born again christian and was deep into it, changing my entire life and praying devotedly. finally i had a cold dose of reality.

  1. Why is free will so sacred?

    That's a good question I think free will means we are not forced to do good while we are in this body. . Free will does not mean we get to choose our destiny but we get to choose our actions within the framework of our destiny. Am I making any sense to you? Also, in the matter of sending believers of other religions to hell, even when I had my feet firmly into Christianity, I never believed that God would send good people to hell just because they didn't acknowledge jesus christ. I thought then and as I think now that ultimately, jesus Christ represents a principle and a way of life, and this is something believer of any faith can follow though they may call it something else. I have seen too many so called christians do evil deeds while being self-righteous and smug that they have a ticket to heaven due to being "saved" and acknowledging jesus christ. They forget that the same bible they worship also says that Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. Revelation 2:23 God "will repay each person according to what they have done." Roman 2:6
  2. Why is free will so sacred?

    My "understanding" means that it makes sense to me from a religious theoretical point of view and seems to answer the question. Have I fully accepted it? No. I have not fully accepted Christianity nor have I fully rejected it. I am honouring and exploring my doubts from both sides. I am taking it day by day.
  3. The Doubt Paradox

    I am re-exploring Christianity, but not currently attending any church. I am working through my doubts on my own, because the topic of doubt is not very well dealt with in churches.
  4. Why is free will so sacred?

    This is an issue that has bothered me. So I researched the apologetics and heard various opinions and explanations, from which I have curated my own understanding. The following is where I am at the moment. Who knows where I will be in 1 month or 1 year? God wants people who really want and chose to be with him. God does not want robots, that is why he gave us free will. Hell is reserved for Satan and the other fallen angels who followed Satan. The humans who don't want to be with God will not go to hell. They will be dead, forever. That is the opposite of eternal life which the God followers will have in heaven.
