Freedom: state of being free rather than in confinement, exemption from external control. Power to determine action without restraint. Personal liberty, as from slavery, bondage. Liberation or deliverance, as from bondage.
Free will: independent of natural, social, or divine restraint
-We are the image of God. God has free will(?). God follows laws. We follow laws. God is only logical. So if free will exists, it only exists within these “laws” so therefore…..it can’t really exist anyway. Ha.-
“Condemned to be free” -Jean Paul Sarte
-So everything works out to glorify God. Does that make it a law of life?A logical truth. Something that cannot help but to just happen. Something even God “follows”?
“Your logic is not God’s logic.” If one tries to assert that God is beyond logic/comprehension, that his goodness (evil?) is beyond comprehension, then they have disqualified themselves from making any assertions about him.
-except for what we know He has told us of Himself-
You can’t have it both ways. Saying you know God, but that God is unfathomable. On what grounds could you insist tat belief is reasonable when it cannot, by definition, be accessed by us?
-I insist God exists because DNA and RNA and because mitochondria has its own genome. Because those membranes are made of other particles that work and function together to actually exist.
To be, to exist, is to be one way and not another. Saying God is beyond logic, is to liberate God from logic.
-So logic is a box? Logic is limited because it is…logic. By definition logic is a truth and a law. If you then say logic is unlimited, you are saying that even “chaos” is logic. That when things happen,or are, then it is logical. Merely by the fact that it IS. Logic can then be whatever IS. –
Omnipotence is not intelligible. “These problems are only problems in appearance, not for a god who is beyond our conceptual capacities. If god exists in someone’s mind no matter what, then it really doesn’t mean anything for God to exist at all.
