Is there "free will" in Christianity?



Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man-living in the sky-who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time... But He loves you! ~ George Carlin

Hey, thanks for posting my video.

Great Video? Simple precise logic.

Christians say that God wanted people to worship in free will and not like the angels. If the angels did not have free will, then how were they able to "rebel against god?" Would not free will have to exist for the angels? That negates the whole argument from Christians.
So it would seam that angels really did have free will.

Also, how could anyone love a god, or anybody, that forced you to love them by such a choice as hell or my way? There could not be any real true love in a situation like that. Just acting out of fear.

Maybe that is why so many christians really dont follow it themselves, they just go through the motions in hope that they will escape this hell.

I agree with you Mike.

I've said for a very long time that I think it's pathetic that an all knowing and loving God has to use scare tactics, like burning in hell for eternity and other forms of manipulation just to win the loyality of others.

Sounds like God has a major insecurity problem. He must be really bored, and that is why he wants so much attention from others.

Just imagine this statement from God himself:

GOD: Follow me or you will burn in hell! I'm God! I have lots of power and I will use it against you if you don't follow me! You hear me? I am God! I do love you in all honesty, however if you don't follow me, you will burn in hell. You need to follow me, because I am God! Do you people understand me? I can destroy you people!

If that's the best God can do to get others to follow him, then he is truly pathetic.

It also shows that he is limited in power. Plus the christian trolls who post on here who supposedly represent "God" are a prime example of how pathetic God really is since he can't seem to do no better than choose a bunch of weak minded fools to represent him.
