When people talk about free will, how do they explain the fact that no one would ever choose hell? Because, it seems that many people’s view of free will is that people have the God-given right to choose whether to follow/obey/worship God and, thusly, go to heaven. But that assumes everyone can believe whole-heartedly IN God. Doesn’t it?
Doesn’t this raise some problems? I can speak from experience that no matter how hard you try, you can’t FORCE yourself to believe in something you don’t. So how is that just if two people can read/hear the same thing but believe completely different things (or perhaps, one believes it and the other doesn’t). So how is that just? Doesn’t that just kill the idea of free will?
The truth is that if everyone was equally able to believe in God (as free will seems to suggest), then who would choose hell? Isn’t that the point?
Or is it one of those, “When you did that, you made a choice, that was free will, and since you chose to do something that God said not to, then you chose not to follow God, so you chose hell” things?
That doesn’t seem just to me. I want to excercise my free will and choose heaven. I’ll do what I need to, just as long as I believe. However, I’ve searched, and I don’t believe. I believe in a god, but I don’t know which one.
I know there are a lot of holes in these questions, but it’s late, so I’m going to leave it at that for the time being. Keep in mind, I’m not insulting anyone, so if you read this, and you’re mad, I didn’t mean it. I say that because whenever I write questions like this, someone gets mad at me.
Have a good one.
I love you all.
