"The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands." - Alexandria Penney.
Let's break down what is deemed as the ritual of the Lord's prayer, although Jesus Christ said you should
this and not say it
verbatim emptily, which I think he said because it was directed to the people that only look within the confines of the bible, that is another
discussion for another day.
"Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil."
Let's touch upon the line of: "your will be done."
Who would have known this little line would be the central theme in a debate?
What if I were to tell you what I think my will is, is actually indirectly Father's will?
I am expecting the responses of from modern Christians is around the lines of, "Following after your own will is a sin against God," and if your
response is around these lines, don't bother to post to this thread right now, and take a step back.
To say free will exist is to say that God does not have everything planned, and that would postulate that this life that we live in is a chaotic
order, but even the number of hairs on our head is planned; that is how deep the love runs.
I say to those that say free will exists, I say Father is omniscient, and He knows what we will do/say/feel and uses it for the greater good, which
would postulate that we really have no choice or say in the matter, but to just ride along the currents of the stream and have fun splashing each
That being said, is not my will Father's will? Discuss.
