-The Christian myth of freewill-

Just happens to be one of the most deceptive, damaging and subtle lies ever, to be brought into Counterfeit Christianity, by way of Satan, the god of this world. Teaching to their docile converts, that fail to have the ability themselves to seek and search out the truth of God, by submitting to the leading of the Holy Spirit that promises to lead us into all of God’s truth. The church that they belong to, soon becomes their own god, as they suck up every last bit of hog slop from the table of demons. From the minister at the podium masquerading as an angel of light, under the sway of Satan himself. as is the custom of many, while at the same time denying the truth of God.

No matter how many different churches, denominations, or splinter groups off other churches, denominations and splinter groups, repeat their traditional lie after lie, falsehood after falsehood, half-truth after half-truth, it does not make, change, or cause them to be true. Man has a will, of that there is no doubt, but he does not have a freewill apart and separate from the will and intent of God. No power within or beyond the universe can go against the will and intent of God Almighty. The will of our Father God has perfect 100% control over all things, and all of the time. The reason this is so important, is because it causes billions of deceived human beings to be taken in by deception.

                                                           -Teaching after custom, ritual and tradition-

Counterfeit Christianity, the Babylon of confusion, the orthodox Christian church, along with this worlds Christian religion, those being taught and having accepted satanic deception as the truth of God all around the world. They are all one and the same, there is little to no actual truth in anything they believe or teach others to accept and to believe as the truth of God. The wonderful and awesome truth of God, dims into total insignificance, all that they continue to expound upon as the truth of God. They one and most all, accept, believe and teach after custom, ritual and tradition, while holding the word of God in contempt.

-Gods command to come out of Babylon-

For example: Jesus Christ claims to have been sent here to earth by His Father God, to be the Savior of all mankind, without even one exception. They again, most one and all of the Babylon of confusion, reject it as the truth of God. And instead accept, believe and teach that He cannot, or will not be able to do it. He will therefore become known as Christ the loser. He was unable to do what His Father had brought Him into existence for. That He will be sending most all of mankind to be tortured and tormented day and night forever in the raging flames of Hell. All of the deceived Babylon of confusion, believing their deceived ministers of darkness, accept and believe that mankind on his own, wills himself into hell. In accepting and believing that to be true, they are in essence saying, that the will of man is superior to the will of God. What say you God? “Come out of her, my people. (Rev.18:4) I will include some differing approaches concerning free will below, that we might learn from.

-Sam Harris writes-

While the Word of God is the basis for all absolute truth, there are scholars however, who argue publicly against free will who are blind to the social and psychological consequences. Some simply don’t agree that these consequences might include the collapse of civilization. One of the most prominent is the neuroscientist and writer Sam Harris, who, in his 2012 book, Free Will, set out to bring down the fantasy of conscious choice. Like Smilansky, another unbeliever of free-will, he believes that there is no such thing as free will. But Harris thinks we may pay more attention to our P’s and Q’s. Exercising personal responsibility, in greater detail and energy, if we actually believe there is a free will.

-Be the best versions of ourselves, that we can be-

“We need our beliefs to track what is true,” Harris told me. Illusions, no matter how well intentioned, will always hold us back. For example, we currently use the threat of imprisonment as a crude tool to persuade people not to do bad things. But if we instead accept that “human behavior arises from neurophysiology,” he argued, then we can better understand what is really causing people to do bad things despite this threat of punishment—and how to stop them. “We need,” Harris told me, “to know what are the levers we can pull as a society to encourage people to be the best version of themselves they can be.”

                                                          -The brain is the source of deviancy-

According to Harris, we should acknowledge that even the worst criminals—murderous psychopaths, for example—are in a sense unlucky. “They didn’t pick their genes. They didn’t pick their parents. They didn’t make their brains, yet their brains are the source of their intentions and actions.” In a deep sense, their crimes are not their fault. Recognizing this, we can dispassionately consider how to manage offenders in order to rehabilitate them, protect society, and reduce future offending. Harris thinks that, in time, “it might be possible to cure something like psychopathy,” but only if we accept that the brain, and not some airy-fairy free will, is the source of the deviancy. Accepting this would also free us from hatred. Holding people responsible for their actions might sound like a keystone of civilized life, but we pay a high price for it: Blaming people makes us angry and vengeful, and that clouds our judgment.

“Compare the response to Hurricane Katrina,” Harris suggested, with “the response to the 9/11 act of terrorism.” For many Americans, the men who hijacked those planes are the embodiment of criminals who freely choose to do evil. But if we give up our notion of free will, then their behavior must be viewed like any other natural phenomenon—and this, Harris believes, would make us much more rational in our response.

Although the scale of the two catastrophes was similar, the reactions were wildly different. Nobody was striving to exact revenge on tropical storms or declare a War on Weather, so responses to Katrina could simply focus on rebuilding and preventing future disasters. The response to 9/11, Harris argues, was clouded by outrage and the desire for vengeance, and has led to the unnecessary loss of countless more lives. Harris is not saying that we shouldn’t have reacted at all to 9/11, only that a coolheaded response would have looked very different and likely been much less wasteful. “Hatred is toxic,” he told me, “and can destabilize individual lives and whole societies. Losing belief in free will undercuts the rationale for ever hating anyone.” (end quote)

-Ephesians 2:4-10New International Version (NIV)-

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

The Bible teaches that there is no free will. Examining ExodusEcclesiastes 7Ephesians 1: 3-4 2Matthew 5:45Acts 13Romans 8Roman 92 (Timothy, 1:9) 

9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, Once again, it is not their choices that have led to them 'called with a holy calling'. It is God's will that has caused this, irrespective of what 'choices' the person made, or is to make, during their lives. Free will doesn't enter the equation. (2nd

Thessalonians) 2:13) 13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

( Titus 3:4-5) 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; We see that God's plan overrides our free will; those that do good do the specific good that God predestined them to do, and all others are ruled by Satan because God sends "powerful delusions" to them. The Christian Bible frequently states that God creates our future and decides our fates, no matter what our own will is. It constantly denies that we have free will. Some of the foremost Christians in history have taught that there is no free will, including St. Augustine1 (one of the founders of Western Christianity), Martin Luther (founder of Protestantism) and John Calvin (founder of Calvinism).

-God has not given Himself a choice, we must all be saved-

“Praise be to [God], who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will, to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. And since our God loves all of us unconditionally, He has placed upon Himself as a God whom cannot lie, the non-refutable absolute promise of salvation for all. In him we were also chosen having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.” Ephesians 1:3-6,11 [NIV] And His will dear ones, is that all men must be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:4)

-Our awesome destiny-

It is only through Jesus Christ, that the followers, believers, and acceptors of Godly truth as opposed to the satanic lies and deception of a counterfeit Christianity will be allowed to enter the kingdom of God. Human beings can enter the kingdom of God as they repent upon their general unbelief of the truth of God, and specifically of whom Jesus Christ claims to be, the Savior of all mankind and in truth and in fact all of creation. (Hence why Christianity is called what it is). (Romans 8: 28-29) 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

-We that conform to His image, become as He is-

With Christ being the firstborn of many brothers and sisters, all of the rest of us will join the firstborn of many, with Jesus Christ being our older brother. We are all spending this physical life within a symbolic gestation stage so to speak. We are all on our journey of becoming gods ourselves. We as brothers and sisters, and when fully formed, will in fact and in truth become as God and Christ are now. We will be immortal, spirit beings. We will have life as God and Christ now have life. It matters not one iota whether you believe the truth of God in this moment of time. There is ample proof that you will at some point. (Hebrews 8:10-12) 10 This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 

-Jesus Christ accepts all responsibility to properly educate mankind-

(Hebrews 8:11-12)11 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.

12 For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

(Isaiah 26:9) With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Isaiah 54:13 "All your sons will be taught of the LORD; And the well-being of your sons will be great.

Jeremiah 31:34 "They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."

John 6:45
It is written in the prophets: 'And they will all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from Him comes to Me--

1 John 2:27
And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.

                              -Jesus Christ became what we are, so we will become what He is-

All of this is chosen, predetermined, before we were ever born, before we have had any chance to exercise free will. The cause and effect is not that our free will determines our fate; but that we will act in a way that will save us, if God has chosen us to act that way. It clearly denies free will. But the Bible is voluminous and confusing sometimes, written by multiple Human beings, and it is odd to argue that something "must be true" from one mere verse. It helps if we have multiple versus behind any Biblical argument. Sometimes when Christians argue amongst themselves it turns into a back and forth verse-by-verse expounding upon, to fortify our belief of specific scriptures.

-Our destiny has already been prepared for us-

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:4-10) [NIV]

                                                                 -No free will involvement-

Ephesians continues. Versus one to four talks about how particular people once lived in sin, but that 'the spirit' comes to work in particular people to reform them. These people, who become reformed, are those who God has chosen to reform, as we have seen earlier in Ephesians. Here, the author of Ephesians explains that it is not by personal effort that you are saved. It is 'not from yourself' but it is 'the gift of God' that saves people. Specifically, then, God chooses some people and grants them the gift of God, those who are chosen before time, according to God's plan, to conform to Jesus.

Those who are chosen by God are automatically destined to ‘do good works’ which ‘God prepared in advance for us to do’. It’s not that people choose to do good, and are therefore accepted into the kingdom of God, or even that people choose to do good and therefore come to accept Jesus. The Bible clearly states that God makes specific people do specific ‘good works’, which God has chosen that certain people will do. Those who do good works are those who God has predetermined to do good works. There is no free will involvement here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 -The predestination of all mankind-

(Romans 8: 29-30) Much of the New Testament after the gospels are the letters (epistles) of Paul to various Churches, plus numerous epistles written in the name of Paul, such as Ephesians as we saw above. Romans is written by Paul himself, and is also heavily deterministic. (relating to the philosophical doctrine that all events, including human action, are ultimately determined by causes regarded as external to the will.) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.30And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” (Romans 8:28-30) [NIV]

-Our salvation is not debatable-

Note the logic here... God has called certain people according to what God wants to get done, and these people love God. God then "works for the good" of these people. It is not that these people have acted well and have then accepted God: People are predestined to be "conformed" to Jesus. These people are predestined to love God. It doesn't matter about their free will or whether they wanted to accept Jesus, or even if they believe in Jesus or not. God "predestined, called, justified and glorified" those who it chose, not those who chose God. Their choice was irrelevant: If God predetermined them to be accepted, then they therefore behave in a way that makes them accepted, conformed to the teachings of the Word of God, which is Jesus Christ. If God has chosen you to be to in His kingdom, and He has. You have absolutely no say in the matter at all. You just do not see it now.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 -The anti-God problem that advocates of free will have-

Is wide, deep and profound, we have to forgive them because as Christ announced against His murders, “forgive them Father, for they know not what they are doing”. The proponents of free will, likewise, know not what they are doing. For them to accept and to believe, as they do, that mankind will through his own free will, will themselves into hell, against the will of God, rather than to submit to God. Causing them to commit a most serious atrocity, of great blasphemy against our Almighty God of all heaven and earth, accepting and believing, that the will of man is more powerful than the will of God. They obviously have never stopped to consider the consequences of the choice they are making on the matter of diminishing the will of God, in conjunction to the worm like free will of mankind.

                                                            -Here is just a little of what God has to say-                                                                                                                               

Jeremiah 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.

Proverbs 16:9 The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.

Proverbs 20:24 Man's steps are ordained by the LORD, How then can man understand his way?

Isaiah 26:7 The way of the righteous is smooth; O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.

Daniel 5:23 but you have exalted yourself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines have been drinking wine from them; and you have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or understand. But the God in whose hand are your life-breath and your ways, you have not glorified.

-Our decision or God’s, which-

If your choices determine if you will belong to the kingdom of God, then the Bible is constantly saying that such choices were chosen by God. Not by you. Specifically, clearly and definitely chosen by God. Your actions are not according to your will, but to God's, "according to his will and pleasure" and "according to his purpose". Not your will or pleasure, not your purpose, and certainly not your choice!

So far, we have seen that God has chosen some people to be predestined and predetermined to be blessed with conformity to Jesus' will. What of the others, then, who God has chosen not to conform to Jesus, who God has chosen not to be blameless and holy? Presumably, they go on to make similar choices in life to those who are chosen, but they just don't get it right because God hasn't created them in that way. God has created them to fail or to come up, short for a time. “Not only that, but Rebekah's children had one and the same father, our father Isaac. Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad - in order that God's purpose in election might stand: not by works but by him who calls - she was told "The older will serve the younger". Just as it is written: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated".What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion"(Exodus 33:19)

Romans 9:10-15 [NIV] Paul affirms that free will does not affect our fate, and then he asks finally and directly: If our actions and nature are determined by God, how can god blame us for those actions? The Biblical text runs thusly: “It does not therefore, depend on man's desire or effort, but on God's mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: "I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed on all the earth." [Exodus 9:1618 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. 19 One of you will say to me: "Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?"” (Romans 9:16-19) [NIV]

And that is the clincher; the ultimate question. Paul has asked "Is God unjust for His denial of free will, for His disregard for what our choices and intentions are. Paul now has that same question. His answer is a shocker: “But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?'"[Isaiah 29:1645:921Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?”

Paul is writing emotionally to Timothy, his close friend. His letter talks of their faith and work. He describes himself as a "prisoner" of God: “[God] has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity.” 2 Timothy 1:9 [NASB] Once again, it is not their choices that have led to them 'called with a holy calling'. It is God's will that has caused this, irrespective of what 'choices' the person made, or is to make, during their lives. Free will doesn't enter the equation.

-Misc. Biblical Text-

“When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed.” Acts 13:48 [NIV]

Saying "all who were appointed for eternal life believed" only makes sense He was going to create and save. But God didn't merely know who was going to make the right choices, and therefore be saved, God appointed those who were to believe. Again, this is not a matter of free will, but of God's plan. Those who believed were appointed (made) by God to believe. This ties in with Thessalonians. “But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13 [NIV]

There are other verses that are not directly to do with salvation, but rather with justice. In Matthew 5:45 we hear that God makes the sun and rain afflict both the good and the evil amongst us. Salvation, nor suffering, is the result of free will.

“Consider God's handiwork; who can straighten what He hath made crooked?” (Ecclesiastes 7:13) The answer to Ecclesiastes, as we have seen, is that no-one can. God creates people and the world 'crooked'; not due to free will or our choices, but because God Has made the good times and the bad times and it has made them "well". There is no changing what God has made crooked, because there is no free will.

The work of Satan in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 13But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.”,2 Thessalonians 2:9-13 [NIV]

There are those who are not chosen by God, who God has created to not conform to Jesus, and who God has not chosen before time to become one with Jesus, nor even to understand Jesus. These people cannot accept the truth, because God has not chosen them as ones who will understand it. In addition, to make sure, God sends these 'walking dead' "a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie". We have seen that God selects, in advance, who will perform well and who will not. God selects in advance who will be blessed and God chooses who will choose to conform to Jesus. All of this is God's choice.

-The will of God, always prevails, and never fails-

In addition, those who God does not elect to be saved are judged, but also have powerful delusions sent to them that make them believe lies. It is God's will that these people are not chosen by God, God's will that they are not blessed with Jesus nor are they 'conformers' to Jesus (because God didn't choose them to be at this time), and in addition it is God's will that they believe lies. The disbelievers and the believers are all, as we have seen multiple times, acting in accordance with the way God wants them to act. Those that do good, God has chosen to do good and even chosen what 'good works' they will do! Those who God has not chosen to be good, God deceives with powerful delusions. No element of free will exists in any of this scheme; it is not personal choice that affects fate, it is only God's will.

Apologies if the text on page seems repetitive: But I am only repeating what the Bible says, and The Christian Bible repeatedly denies free will or choice to us.

                                                                     -Christian Proponents of Free Will-

The concept of strict determinism is very hard to fathom, and for many people, even harder to accept. Even those who understand predestination, who know that all effects have causes, cannot readily say in their emotional daily lives that the concept lives in their hearts. For this reason, and because most people simply assume that the Bible teaches that we choose to go to heaven or hell through our actions and/or beliefs, I am fairly sure that most Christians believe in free will. They don't have any strong lines of reasoning, and, they have not got worked-out solution to the theological problems with free will as presented on this page. They just feel that because they make conscious choices all the time, that there must be a thing called free will. Based on such assumption and emotion, it is sometimes official Christian doctrine that free will exists. Take the following declaration made at,

-The Great Council of Trent (1545-1563)-

“If anyone says that man's free will, moved and stimulated by God, cannot cooperate at all by giving its assent to God when he stimulates and calls him.. and that he cannot dissent, if he so wills, but like an inanimate creature is utterly inert and passive, let him be.

                                         "The Dark Side of Christian History" by Helen Ellerbe (1995)

In plain English, it says: if you don't believe in free will, then, we reject you as a Christian. They certainly sound sure about this belief... but note that what lacks in their statement is any philosophical or logical argument as to how free will can sit alongside God's omnipotency and the rules of cause and effect. So, although many in the world believe in free will because it seems natural to believe in it, the reality is that the arguments against it are insurmountable, especially for a bible-believing Christian. This has been reflected in history, as the great Christian movements and thinkers have argued against free will. Free Will did exist formally in some forms of historical Christianity; short-lived Pelagianism was one such sect that propounded free will:

“Pelagius [was] a British monk who was active early in the 5th century and who attacked Augustine's view that moral goodness is possible only through an act of divine grace. Pelagius maintained that every person has free will, that a person's sinful state is not inherited and that grace is an aid to (rather than the sole source of) human righteousness. He denied that God has predestined each person to heaven or hell. Pelagianism was eventually condemned as heretical.”

                                "The Penguin Dictionary of Religions" by John R. Hinnells (1997)

Initial opinions on free will within Christianity. These issues were debated in the first few centuries and since then, nothing new has been said on the issue. No new opinions have been expressed on the subject in two thousand years. It is an old debate, and one that is in my mind clearly settled by the determinists. Christianity has no room for free will, but for psychological or other reasons, many Christians (perhaps most) have believed in genuine individual free will.

-St. Augustine (354-430) Taught that We Have No Free Will-

St Augustine of Hippo is one of the four great founders of Western Christianity1, 'few men have surpassed' him in influence on Christianity. He strongly believed in predestination, and Calvin and Luther both owe a great part of their doctrines to St Augustine. “[No-one] can, of their own power, abstain from sin. Only God's grace enables men to be virtuous. Since we all inherit Adam's sin, we all deserve eternal damnation. All who die unbaptized, even infants, will go to hell and suffer unending torment. So, says the Babylon of confusion joined at the hip with Satan, the god of this world. We have no reason to complain of this, since we are all wicked. But by God's grace certain people, among those who have been called, are chosen to be the elect of God. They have not earned their salvation, they have been selected by God for whatever reasons He has decreed that we should be. So far as God's grace is being bestowed on the elect, enables us to become useable to rule and reign with Jesus Christ here on earth for a thousand years.

-Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)-

“Today many thoroughly-instructed Roman Catholics may be surprised to learn that the same appalling doctrine of Divine predestination has been, and presumably still is, an essential element in their faith. Thus Aquinas' Summa Theologiae contains a Question of 'Predestination' in which the Angelic Doctor lays it down that: As men are ordained to eternal life through the providence of God, it likewise is part of that providence to permit some to fall away [... and] so He also not only gave things their operative powers when they were first created, but is also always the cause of these in things. Hence if this divine influence stopped, every operation would stop. Every operation, therefore, of anything is traced back to Him as its source.

                                                                                    -Dr Antony Flew (2003)-

Prof. Flew examines two later chapters of the Summa Theologiae where Aquinas argues against those who say that God merely influences our wills in order to promote what God wishes to be done, he says "these people are, of course, opposed quite plainly by authoritative texts of Holy Writ". Aquinas asserts in those two chapters that God moves us directly to do as HE wants, even including, as the quote above shows, operations the 'falling away' of agents. In other words, sin is, just like virtuous behaviour, directly controlled by God. Aquinas then quotes from Scripture: "For it says in Isaiah (xxxvi, 2) 'Lord, you have worked all your work in us'. Hence, we receive from God not only the power of willing but its employment also (Bk III, Chaps 88-89)."

-Martin Luther (1483-1546) and John Calvin (1509-1564)-

“A leading feature in the teaching of the Reformers of the sixteenth century, especially in the case of Luther and Calvin, was the denial of free will. Picking out from the Scriptures, and particularly from St. Paul, the texts which emphasized the importance and efficacy of grace, the all-ruling providence of God, His decrees of election or predestination, and the feebleness of man, they drew the conclusion that the human will, instead of being master of its own acts, is rigidly predetermined in all its choices throughout life. As a consequence, man is predestined before his birth to eternal reward in such fashion that he never can have had any real free-power over his own fate. In his controversy with Erasmus, who defended free will, Luther frankly stated that free will is a fiction, a name which covers no reality, for it is not in man's power to think well or ill, since all events occur by necessity.

In reply to Erasmus's "De Libero Arbitrio", he published his own work, "De Servo Arbitrio", glorying in emphasizing man's helplessness and slavery. The predestination of all future human acts by God is so interpreted as to shut out any possibility of freedom. An inflexible internal necessity turns man's will whithersoever God preordains. With Calvin, God's preordination is, if possible, even more fatal to free will. Man can perform no sort of good act unless necessitated to it by God's grace which it is impossible for him to resist. It is absurd to speak of the human will "co-operating" with God's grace, for this would imply that man could resist the grace of God. The will of God is the very necessity of things. It is objected that in this case God sometimes imposes impossible commands. Both Calvin and Luther reply that the commands of God show us not what we can do but what we ought to do.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                               M. Maher (1909)

Christian theology in this sense is quite abhorrent: The Christian God is a monster, ( I would agree, that the so called Christian god is a monster. His name is Satan and he is according to the Word of God, the god of this world.) imposing his hellish will upon Human Beings who have no choice but to suffer.

-The Church of England-

The Church of England has also embraced the doctrines of determinism, at the expense of the idea of free will, although few today ponder these issues: “Those who know the Church of England only in its present secular decline will perhaps be surprised to learn once upon a time its Commission on Doctrine unhesitatingly affirmed "that the whole course of events is under the control of God" and appreciated that "logically this involves the affirmation that there is no event, and no aspect of any event, even those due to sin and so contrary to the Divine will, which falls outside the scope of His purposive activity." (from Doctrine in the Church of England, Church House Publishing, 1922 p.27.)”

-One more paragraph of opinion-

What a breath of fresh air it would be to then revert to pagan beliefs in free will! Socrates, four hundred years before Christianity was even born, thought up a much more moral way for the universe to run: "the good go to heaven, the bad to hell, the intermediate to purgatory"8. It is so much more moral that those who behave well go to heaven, than the Christian doctrines of baptism, original sin and predestination. It is no wonder that such pagan ideas found themselves accepted by most Christians. It's just lucky that they don't know they're pagan in origin!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              -It is a shame no one ever reads the Bible-

For those caring to know the actual truth of the Word of God, let me enlighten you a little here. Christ must be doubled over in nearly uncontrollable laughter, as He sits here beside me reading this over my shoulder. That after six thousand years of human history on this earth, mankind has now come up with a plan that they think is better than the plan and purpose of God. "The good go to heaven, the bad to hell, the intermediate to purgatory" When God does open their eyes and their understanding to His truth, they will finally see what degree of deception has been shoved down their naïve throats that has the name of God attached upon it, using His name in vain, but stinks to high heaven in His nostrils. I am going to make it easy for you all to understand the actual truth about salvation. It doesn’t even require that you believe it at this moment, but you will.

-The purpose and plan of God-

Is right on course, it can never be stopped, slowed down, or changed in anyway. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, He is immutable, He changes not. His purpose and plans for mankind from before the world began, has always been to reproduce Himself in mankind as He so states it in (Genesis 1:26) Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. It cannot be made any easier to understand than that. All we need to know what our destiny is to be, is to understand what God is like. To know that, we read the Word, which is, Jesus Christ. He came to earth to reveal His Father to mankind. Both Christ and His Father God are immortal, spirit beings, that is the exact destiny of mankind as well. We will all have life as God and Jesus Christ have life. Christ came to save mankind, our salvation is for certain, it cannot and will not ever be revoked.

                                                                                  -We are not of this world-                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      John 8:23 Then He told them, "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

John 17:14 I have given them Your word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

1 John 4:5 They are of the world. That is why they speak from the world's perspective, and the world listens to them.

John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

We whom claim to be followers of God and Jesus Christ, need to recognize that we are not of this world. Our allegiance first and foremost, is to another kingdom, we are ambassadors for the kingdom of God. We should separate ourselves from the ways of this world. Those are the rules being laid down to the called and chosen ones of God. 3 4 A soldier refrains from entangling himself in civilian affairs, in order to please the one who enlisted him. 5 Likewise, a contender does not receive the crown unless he competes according to the rules. (2nd Timothy 2: 3-5) We as believers and followers of the Word and the way of God, must have a singleness of mind and heart. And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me forever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: (Jeremiah 32:39) And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, (Ephesians 2:6)

-We are spiritual Israel, the covenant people-

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 1:20 which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms,

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.

Colossians 2:12 And having been buried with Him in baptism, you were raised with Him through your faith in the power of God, who raised Him from the dead.

                                                 -Christ as our example, exercised not, His will-

Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: never the less not my will, but thine, be done. (Luke 22:42) So we know that Christ did have a will, however, it wasn’t free from any restraint. His will was in total subjection to the will of God. I will not talk with you much longer, because the ruler of the world Satan) is coming. He has no power over Me (John 14:30) We see here that Satan has for real been established as ruler of this world, and he has no hold over Jesus Christ. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. (Hebrews 4:15) He evidently could have sinned, it could have been possible, but never did, not one time. "Jesus therefore said, 'When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me,'" (John 8:28) He placed Himself under the will, desire, purpose and plan of the One whom is greatest of all, God the Father.

-The Father is greater than Christ-

Contrary to the false teaching of the trinity lie, accepted and taught as the truth of God, by counterfeit Christianity, this scripture telling us that God is greater than Christ, proves beyond any doubt the magnitude of the false teaching of the trinity lie.  27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid. 28 You heard Me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it happens, so that when it does happen, you will believe.… (John 14:27-29) God is, always was, and always will be, greater than all. Once all of mankind has been changed into immortal, spirit beings, such as God and Jesus Christ now are. Everyone will have life as They have life. We are all going to be gods ourselves, as decreed by our Father God. Everything reproducing after its own kind. Animal after the animal kind, insects after their own kind, and God will be reproducing Himself after His god kind. Read the awesome truth of Genesis 1:26 for the first time. “Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness.

                                                        -God directs our mindset as His followers-

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-8) It was through the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ allowing Himself to suffer beyond our imaginations, in the worst kind of pain ever to be endured, that the cost of all of the combined sins of mankind be paid for in full, that all of mankind then MUST be saved. We must never diminish nor forget what our older brother Jesus Christ did for all of human kind and in fact all of creation. Do not let the teachings of Satan deceived ministers of the counterfeit Christian church, known as well, as the Babylon of confusion, twist and turn the Word of God to tell you otherwise.

                                                               -The law of cause and effect-

Freewill, has no believable foundation within the Word of God, it is a Christian contrived false message to deceive the faithful. If Satan, the god of this world, can have us all convinced that man has a freewill, it completely changes the way in which we read and understand the Word of God. The counterfeit Christian church for example, accepts, believes and teaches it on to others, that most all of man/woman kind through their own freewill, will because of unbelief in God and His Son Jesus Christ, have willed themselves into hell. To twist, turn and writhe in the most ungodly pain and suffering beyond the imaginations of man, for trillions upon trillions of years without a drop of water or any relief at all, forever. Man, beyond any doubt does have a will, that we exercise all of the time. We make choices from morning till night, but they are not choices being made without the law of cause and effect, coming into play. For every single effect that has ever taken place on this earth, there had to be a cause for it.

-Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit-

The false teaching of even one person, let alone most all of mankind, ever willing themselves into hell or annihilation by way of their freewill that is being taught and accepted as the truth of God, is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, and diminishes the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, it as well, nullifies the responsibility given to Him by His Father God, as He alone has been given that responsibility, and did whole-heartedly accept it and totally accomplished it the moment He said, “It is finished”. Our salvation is not something waiting to be done, when Christ announced it is finished, He had completed the salvation for all of man/woman kind. To doubt or to question it, only shows ignorance on the part of the one doing the questioning. To question our salvation shows a giant lack of spiritual, understanding. It also indicates that God has not revealed it to us at this time. Freewill then, has no credibility at all, it just does not exist.

                                                   -Study to show yourselves approved unto God-

Freewillers: Those being identified as believing and accepting that mankind has a freewill separate and apart from the will and intent of God, are in my estimation to be compared to “a hog dancing on ice”. They are in grave danger of their cloven hooves slipping and sliding out of control as they fall all straddle legged in a deep heap of deception. There is a saying that, “You either stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything” If we stand for something wrong however, we have already fallen for something. I urge you to do some serious seeking and searching on this matter of freewill. Do not become complacent and be dependent upon a minister of Satan masquerading as an angel of light whose only intent is to deceive you. Show yourselves to be approved of God. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2nd Timothy 2:15)

    "May the God of all heaven and earth, richly bless His truth and open minds to be able to receive it."
