You can’t take away from people what God gave them.
This is true even if you feel you are morally supported, spiritually justified, ethically infused or intellectually motivated.
We would have much happier lives if we would understand that our sphere of influence does not have authority outside the circle of our heart.
So you may ask, what has God given to people?
I think the reason that many folks believe in destiny is because they can cast onto God their distaste for the world around them. In other words, if they don’t like people with blue hair or brown eyes, they can insist that God also has predestined, from the foundations of the world, severe punishment for these individuals.
But when you submit to free will, you understand that God considers it to be supreme above all commandments.
After all, even though God loves the world, He neither gets offended nor kills people off when they don’t love Him back.
So when we attempt to ban anything and forbid its continuation, we will generally fail because it removes free will from other human beings, which God insists they should have.
- So how can we have a righteous world if we don’t preach righteousness?
- How can we have morality if it’s not enforced?
- And how can we keep our children safe from evil if it’s allowed to roam the Earth?
The answer is easy.
