Amen Trifecta..<quoted text>That's your lack of understanding and ignorance talking.
Millions of people follow Jesus Christ, and do not have a bible, go to church, or do any religious activities. They simply believed. Believing, is not a religious act. Jesus Christ is not Religion. Jesus Christ condemned religion. You are writing out of ignorance.
But wait...are you actually stupid?, or you just cannot understand.
God is omniscient.
God knows all actions you will take, before you do them. And God knows all the outcomes of such actions/thoughts, before you do.
But you do not know what you will do, until the appointed time in your life and history confronts you.
So you have free will, because you were not in existence before time on the throne with God seeing all the actions you would do before you were born.
So although God knew what you would do at age 10 or 20 or 30 or 70 or 80...YOU DONT.
How come you still no understand?
Maybe a better writer can write it for you. How about Counter Strike? you want him to explain it? or maybe Skombolis, he a pretty good writer.
Iyai!oy! my goodness you is as dense as a volcano rock, no wonder you turn atheist, God can't get nothing through that thick skull of yours.
I understand perfectly what you are saying. It so simple yet hardly nobody understands the simplicity in Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3 plainly tells us that though...
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the "simplicity that is in Christ".
The greatest stumbling block to men entering eternal life is the simplicity of salvation. Men want to "do" something to earn salvation, but God says it is a gift, because Jesus Christ paid the price on the cross. He bought eternal life for every man. However, the gift must be received by faith. The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" To which they answered, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved" (ACT 16:30-31). There are Many, Many more verses that tells us the same thing.
Thats Christianity..NOT Religion..I use to be a very religious person and then I found Gods Grace and what the Gospel truly meant. Its so simple but humans have been raised in a "work for what you earn" mentality that they cant see the simplicity in salvation.
