Evidence of free will

The thought of how God ''goes through the motions'' with us has been on my mind of late. It is truly absolute evidence of free will. This whole 'earth' experience.

I want to make it clear that He does not need this realm that is limited by the law's of physics. Yet He created it. All we see is evidence of how devoted He is to His plan for us. His commitment to treating us respectfully. He could have created us as a toaster in His kitchen. No, He creates earth and all there is within it, for us.

It may sound disrespectful to say ''He goes through the motions'', but it is not. He is God of the universe who does not have to do anything for anyone. Yet He does so much for us. He even lays His life down for us. Submits Himself to those who hate Him. As a lamb to the slaughter. Experiences the full pain and suffering of the cross. Absolutely nobody would have a say in the matter if He chose not to do this. He is God of the universe. Yet, He does this.

Further to this, consider how much scripture says He ''hates'' what is evil. Yet He allows it to exist, to allow for free will.

God creates all there is. He goes to the cross as a Lamb to the slaughter. He tolerates what He utterly hates. This is evidence of Him treating mankind respectfully. Love, honesty, truthful, impartial and righteous.

He could be impartial. Create us in heaven to be an animal tied to a rope. Nobody would have a say against His will. But He does not do this.

How true Psalm 145:7 is They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

and Psalm 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does.

When He first thought of making us, giving us true free will was a given. Albeit He be sovereign.
