Free will goes hand in ahnd with grace.
Grace is love. Its like a movement in a soul of compassion. You know when some one sees another person being beaten or innocence being hurted, that
feeling of compassion is grace.
some people dont have this, and ive seen it and its scary.
God makes a soul good by grace. The man has free will to accept love or not, so yes God makes it good, but (only) with the help of free will.
One saint said, and this sums it up.
" It is not I alone, nor Gods grace alone, but we work together one with the other."
Hes talking about his salvation to perfection, not by himself or Gods grace alone, but cooperative.
I hope that explains alittle.
Madness, im telling you I grew up with evil freinds. One would hit his dog in the face for no reason, just out of the blue, and you know when you see
wickedness, its a complete deprivation of grace and dilligence.
I know when I was younger I would yell and throw things at mother, calling her curses and so on...... I was literally a possesed child, completely
different then I am now..
Its all Gods grace.
Now what some do is try and think they are good by their selves, and they get so built up by pride, its almost unconvertable.
These are the type that wants all the audience directed at them, they dont want to be last, always first, always first in line, never silent or
humble, always obnacious, disrupters, and just built up by pride...
Now theres one thing I noticed lately.
Animals have a natural affection and innocence, but they dont have what we have.
Now, when they are hungry they act on instinct, and they dont say to themselves, well since I dont want to harm this animal, I wont eat. They cant
love that outside of their instinct.
But us, we have this grace, and just like that feeling I get when killing a bug of heartbreak, This is the grace of sonctifying love.
I hope that helped.
