Freewill(christian); Are You Really Free Or Are You Being Scammed? by Gggg102(m): 11:41pm On Dec 30, 2018
OF COURSE TECHNICALLY, CHRISTIANS HAVE FREE WILL, ITS NOT LIKE THEY ARE REMOTE CONTROLLED ROBOT.
HOWEVER, WHEN WE LOOK AT THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THIS WILL, THINGS LOOK DIFFERENT.

LEMME USE THIS HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO BASED ON CHINA'S ONE CHILD POLICY.

CASE 1: CHINA ENCOURAGES THE POLICY, NO REWARDS FOR COMPLIERS AND NO PUNISHMENT FOR NON COMPLIERS. BOTH GROUPS LIVE THEIR NORMAL LIVES IRRESPECTIVE OF CHOICE.

CASE 2: CHINA PROVIDES SCHOLARSHIP AND TAX BREAKS FOR COMPLIERS AND NON COMPLIERS LIVE THEIR NORMAL LIVES. COMPLIERS GET SPECIAL TREATMENT WHILE NON COMPLIERS ARE NOT DENIED THEIR NORMAL LIFE.

CASE 3: CHINA PROVIDES SCHOLARSHIP AND TAX BREAKS FOR COMPLIERS AND NON COMPLIERS ARE JAILED. COMPLIERS GET SPECIAL TREATMENT WHILE NON COMPLIERS ARE DENIED THEIR NORMAL LIVES AND PUNISHED.

1 IS A TRUE DEPICTION OF FREEWILL
2 USES A POSITIVE BLACKMAIL SYSTEM WHICH IS OKAY AS THOSE WHO DO NOT COMPLY DON'T LOSE ANYTHING THEY HAD BY DEFAULT. THOSE WHO COMPLY ARE REWARDED WHICH IS ALSO GOOD.
3 USES NEGATIVE BLACKMAIL WHICH I DON'T FIND OKAY. THOSE WHO DO NOT COMPLY ARE DENIED OF WHAT THEY HAD BY DEFAULT. THIS FORCEFUL.

When you say freewill, what do you mean by that term?

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR PATH. IN LIGHT OF MY POST, FREEDOM TO CHOOSE OR REJECT GOD.

I'M TRYING NOT TO GO TO DEEP INTO TERMINOLOGIES.
