    This writing is only an analogy to show you what it would be like if everyone had free will. There are people who believe they have to make the right choices in order to be saved but this means your whole life has to be in your own hands from the time you're born until you die in the flesh. If this is true, then everyone should be able to do what they want without any concern for others.

    This story is a play based on free will, which means there is no will of God involved. All he did was create us and left us to our own self. This play will show you how that isn't possible.
     
    There is no playwrite (God) to write the playscripts (our lives) so everyone involved with the play has free will to choose whatever they want to say or do. Each actor or actress can decide what to wear for the play and since there are no playscripts or playwrite, there's no need for rehearsels.
     
    The musicians of the orchestra will decide which notes they want to play during the production because they won't have any sheet music. The lighting crew will have a variety of colored lights, strobelights, and spotlights to play with during the production, depending on what kind of mood they're in.
     
    The sound crew has thousands of sound effects to enhance the quality of the play while deciding for themselves what sounds they like the best, how loud they should be and when to make noise.
     
    The audience will be the director, basically the moral majority who like to judge others. They will decide who's good or bad while the play is being acted out. This play will require a large cast of fill-in actors and actresses to replace the ones the director chooses as bad. They will be cast off the stage into a large dark pit that will be started on fire after the show.
     
    The audience, (director) will have a choice to pay to get into the theatre or exercise their free will and walk in for free. They will have the choice to say or do whatever they want while the play is in progress. Stone throwing is allowed by them if they decide an actor, actress or musician isn't performing good enough for them.
     
    At the end of the play, the audience will get to judge the overall performance and all the bad actors, actresses, musicians and light and sound technicians will be thrown into the pit for a big old bonfire that will torture them forever.
     
    I just described a Godless world on a small scale. As you can see, a play like this is impossible but there are people who think we have free will. These people don't see the distinct organization in this world and sense that they don't have control of what's going on.
     
    Many of us have dreams of something different, but here we are, the same old person we've always been. Why can't we choose to be richer, more popular, better looking, more talented, or more loving? Why can't we decide to stop a particular habit when we want to and do them again later in life?
     
    The answers to these questions were put in our play scripts a long time ago when each of us were created in the image of God. God is the playwrite who made plans for everything before anything was created. Each of his created images that we call our soul is our eternal script that can't be changed. Everything we hear, speak, see, smell, taste and touch is within our soul and all we need is a costume (our body) to wear on stage.
     
    The first act of God's play is almost over and all our bodies will perish. Our soul's will rest in God until the next act begins. Without any genetic sins of our flesh during the next age, we will understand that God is in total control of our lives. Don't let this discourage you because it will be the best play we've ever seen.


    If you want to see how much control God has today, go watch the ants, birds, fish and animals in this world. It doesn't take long to learn that we do have play scripts to live by.

    godspeaker, how can you be so certain that it is your God that has written the script for this play, and is directing it at every turn?

    Could it not be as I believe, that there are Three Directors, women all; the Maiden, the Matron, and the Crone, who weave the thread of our lives, directing it where THEY will, and cutting it to its prescribed length? A thread which no Man nor God can ever unravel or change.

    Jesus was the name of a body that the light of God used 2,000 years ago to speak for God. After the body of Jesus died, the light kept shining without a body to use until Peter became the next sinless body. The light that was in Peter began to shine like it did in the body of Jesus. Thousands of other saints learned they were the light of God when they become sinless. The only problem was that the men of the dark killed all the saints and Jesus. The only light that has shined in a body since then is the one that's shining in me today. It's not the body of a man that's important. It's the light of truth that you need to live life.

    John 6
    63: It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.


    Isaiah 45
    5: I am the LORD, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I gird you, though you do not know me,
    6: that men may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the LORD, and there is no other.
    7: I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe, I am the LORD, who do all these things.

    Psalm 27
    0: A Psalm of David.
    1: The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

    Isaiah 51
    4: "Listen to me, my people, and give ear to me, my nation; for a law will go forth from me, and my justice for a light to the peoples.

    John 8
    12: Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

    John 9
    5: As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

    Ephesians 5
    8: for once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light

    John 12
    36: While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light." When Jesus had said this, he departed and hid himself from them.

    1. Do you call Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior?
    2. Do you believe He is the Son of God and came in the flesh?
    3. Do you believe He (Jesus Christ) has always existed?


    PS - A simple yes or no will do to answer those questions

    Since all three of your questions cannot be answered with a yes or no, you better change your questions or start listening to me instead of the enemy.

    If you don't believe in free will, you're not a Christian, IMO. Saying "God has a plan for our lives" or "everything happens for a reason" sounds like what pagans would say about the Olympian gods and their meddling in human affairs, NOT what a Christian would say. If we're not totally free to make our own decisions, what's the point of threatening us with hell, if things don't turn out well? If we're being directed, I don't see how we can be punished.
