If you equate “Free Will” to “Free Choice” and you accept them as words that over lap enough to mean the same concept, we in America begin to understand the nature of our condition. The concept of “Free Choice” will automatically bring into the thought process the element of some kind of power which will allow and/or give you that latitude to make that “Choice”. If you repeal that law or order within the social make-up that gives the person his or her right to “Free Choice” you have violated the persons “Free Will”. The person still has a will but his choice and will is no longer “Free”.
The opening paragraph relates to humanistic thinking and elements of worldly interaction. We do not wish to discuss man’s sinful nature and his inability to please God. Nor do we wish to discuss the power of the will/choice because that power is God’s alone and takes us off on paths not related to the truth of who, people think is in charge.
The simple question becomes, if man does not recognize his sorry state of no “Choice” within his social make-up, should man recognize what is happening to himself now? The simple answer must be, he either thinks he is still “Free” and has those “Choices” or he is completely ignorant of his condition and has degenerated to lower level of thinking animal.
Whatever be the case, man is heading for mayor problems within the human race and as man recedes deeper into his lost condition of his self deception, his social circles will become more and more corrupt. We have not touched on anything hinging on religion and/or God’s rule over man. The question is simply stated and puts these two concepts together and asks, what is to become of our freedom and mans will. If you look at this in the light of man being governed it become quite clear, as we move closer and closer to socialism man will not have a Free “Choice” nor will his “Will” be free.
I think man is about to wake-up from this night mare and wake up to his need of God, and when he does, the rules of repression will be there, along with the chains of bondage that will be so strong, that everyone will realize they are not free. But I fear as wrong as it maybe, it will be too late because our “Choice” and “Will” will cause us to reap corruption, and falseness of positioning, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
