A person who is "condemned" comes from their own free will to choose death over life. It is not that they were not given two choices because they were. Light has come into the world but men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil.Webster's defines "trump" as:
1» A card of a suit any of whose cards will win over a card that is not of this suit.
2» A decisive overriding factor or final resource.
3» To get the better of, i.e. override. conquer, crush, and/or defeat, etc.
Take for example John 3:17-18. In accord with God's free will; people who, of their free will, refuse to believe in His son, are already on the docket to face the sum of all fears.
"God didn't send His son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already.
Now right there is a clash of two free wills. Which of the two do you think will get its way in the end-- God's free will or the disbeliever's free will?
and people are you in agreement with this statement and have no strong argument! I am appalled and ashamed of my so called christian brothers and sisters that you have allowed such blasphemy of the Word of God! But you will attack me in full force for a sense of "arrogancy" i am ashamed you have drop so low.Man is only given "free will" to chose between two things, life or death. The Lord God will never trump man's free will choice because God can not lie.
Ae we now taking the word of an "atheist" for truth?An atheist once informed me that-- in his way of thinking --true free will
faces no penalties for the wrong choice. In other words; he felt that in order
for people to have true free will they would have to be in sovereign control
of their lives.
I could have an ant-farm. The ants can't leave the ant-farm, but they can do whatever they want in the glass case. I'm in control of them, I could kill them all if I wanted to.he felt that in order
for people to have true free will, they would have to be in sovereign control
of their lives.
God "foreknew" what?
Lets say I know you really really good. I know you love the Army, you are always talking about it.● Rom 8:29 . . . For those God whom foreknew, He also predestined to be
conformed to the likeness of His son,
Let's say, hypothetically, that I am one of those whom God foreknew. Well; why
wasn't I consulted before God proceeded conforming me to the likeness of His son?
Maybe I'd prefer to be conformed to Isaac's likeness. or Noah's. or Joseph's. But
nobody asked me; I was given no outs and no options. The likeness of His son has
been forced upon me without my consent.
That's a pretty good example of how God's free will trumps everybody else's free
A person who is "condemned" comes from their own free will to choose death over life. It is not that they were not given two choices because they were. Light has come into the world but men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil.
An "unbeliever" is someone who knows the truth but has decided to not believe what they know to be true.
To be an unbeliever is a free will choice that people make.
Every human being on planet earth was given enough of the light of God to know God exists.Prior to accepting Christ, I was in total rejection, I wouldn't listen to anyone whom I called Bible bashers, God squad and much worse. So as an unbeliever I was not someone who knew the Truth and rejected it, I like others I know didn't want to know.
In that situation, the recruit's free will is in line with the Army's free will.Now that you've made that decision... it's "predestined" that you're going "to be
conformed" to the likeness of a soldier.
Indeed, it seems there are. But there times when they don't do what He commands as well.So, here's a question: Is there anything, anywhere, in the Bible that might suggest
there are occasions when God "drafts" people into following His son instead of
waiting for them to volunteer?
