Ok, I will assume god is real, your god. Where do we go from here?
From everything I have read in the bible god is omnipotent, all knowing and all powerful.
What this means is that he already knows everything that is going to happen or has happened. He is an absolute control as he can decide to change things or not change things, correct. He has set the parameters and laws. This is his show. Somehow and for some reason he decided to create us and everything else.
Now if he is in complete control then all things that happen in this universe have already been decided. I have no say or control over my life and neither does anyone else. All things go according to god’s plan, Correct?
So he has decided who gets into heaven and who does not, nothing I say or do will change that since god can already see into the future and past.
So basically I would assume that we according to this are just puppets or play toys. If the gift of free will is in his control as he determines all outcomes then it is an illusion we partake in. We have no choice.
So whether I believe or not makes no difference as it is all part of god’s plan. Also anything you or I complain about or don’t like is all part of god’s plan.
So what’s the point of it all if all things are predetermined? We are all then designed to play a part in this life, game and scenario whatever you want to call it.
NO free will as all things are in gods control. We may have the illusion of free will but that is all.
I am just going by the laws and parameters from the bible.
If god is real then this is how it is. Show me how it is another way.
If god is all powerful then we are in his control no matter what if he is not all powerful then what kind of a god is he? Is he fallible? If he is then what are his mistakes? If he knows all and is all powerful then nothing is a mistake. If he can make one mistake then how do we determine what is a mistake and what is not?
The way I see it is that we can’t have it both ways. We view things on how they will benefit us I believe we do all things for selfish reasons and it appears that god does as well. If this is the way it is then fine but then really nothing maters as god had dictated all things.
So either god is real or he is not. I have demonstrated what things are if he is real. If I am wrong using the parameters that god is all powerful again please correct me. This in essence is the real issue. It doesn’t matter if we believe or not if god is real. We have no choice by default of god being all powerful.
