    Yeah Wrong! If super natural forces are running your life, you cannot even ask this kind of question. The reason why you can ask is merely to prove that have your own free will. God for believers like me is the reason why I am here on earth. How I exist is because of the people who came ahead and meet to make love and I became the product. Satan is never equal to God. He is just like an angel necessary for man to know the difference between what is right and what is not right.

    You make a choice between good and evil. Whatever comes out of it is your own making. You design your own fate. What you are when you were still in the innocent stage of your life is the choice your immediate environment have taken and when you start to learn on your own, you are now going to make make your own choice. If you fail in what you want to happen in your life, God is not reponsible for that. You may have just made a wrong judgement on what course of action you want to be in your life. Do not believe in the religions that says God is the one running your life. If that will be so, the Free Will is useless. He only wants you to do what is right as what a righteous man should do. And the blessings will be yours. Act wickedly and you will be held accountable for your wickedness. What you sow, so shall you reap. No one will save you except you. Jesus saving you by just knowing him is not totally true. You have to work for your own salvation.

    It is not free will. Let me make that clear. If we had real will to do something alot of things in life would be very different. No what we as man and woman have is something called CHOICE. Plain and simple. It is what you do with your CHOICE that makes you and that around you what you want it to be. God gave all mankind the CHOICE to follow and believe. Or to walk around deaf,dumb and blind. Only God has the will to do something, if you don't believe that then how do you explain all that's around you? And if you say it's the "Big Bang" where did the rock come from to make the BANG?

    We are given free will by God. People choose to blame their problems on God or satan or whatever. The whole point of free will, is also accepting responsibility for our choices. No one seems to do that.

    We don't say it, we believe it. Faith is a wonderful thing, you might try it sometime. These are not supernatural forces, they are spiritual. Satan does not run my life. God has given me the free will to run my own life. I seek his guidance when in doubt.

    Merry Christmas.

    As one who doesn't know (or believe or whatever) I think they might be trying to say that god and satan present obstacles and temptations in one's life while the individual is supposedly left to choose how to respond. Personally, I give parenting and society a lot of credit in the response department, but that wasn't your question...

    We do have "free will" to do whatever we want.

    What we want is then a Choice.

    Our choice then, would be God's Will for our lives.

    Yeah, right, supernatural forces called "GOoD" or D"EVIL" ARE running peoples lives...........

    Its true that mankind were given free will. And its through the temptation of mankind that sin dwells on earth today.

    Your lack of understanding doesn't change anything.

    God knows everything...is everywhere and can do anything.

    The enemy can tempt us, put stumbling blocks in the way, can put suggestive thoughts into our minds but he only has the power we give him. He is defeated but that doesn't stop him from trying to defeat you.

    John 10:10 The enemy comes to kill, to steal and to destroy...

    Well, it's simple really. It's not as if they don't know the truth, they do, but these people are just sadly too stupid for their own good.

    I have free will, but that doesn't mean that God can't help me, the Devil can't harm me, or other people can't harm me. Everyone has free will, not just me.
