God created Man. He gave him free will. God then demanded that man shall worship no God other than Him and laid down all manner of rules and regulation to be adhered to to ensure a happy life and after life. Question - what was the point of giving Man free will in the first place? Why not just create an adoring zombie?

>> Why not just create an adoring zombie?

Sounds like a good description of Chico.

OK, let me put it this way to you... if you are looking for the love of your life what would you choose,
A- someone who is supmissive, has no personality, and willing / programmed to do anything you say.

or B- would you prefer a confident girl, sure and secure of herself who would choose to love and adore you , and do whatever you want because of you , because of what you are and what you represent ??

Either as long as she goes like a rabbit and has big tits. Wears heels and fully fashioned stockings.

I do prefer a (stern) mind of her own though.

Hello Sandy, which one are you then?

If you are going to carry on with the analogy Sandy the independent free spirited girl would be condemned for life, as would her descendents, if she did not fall in love with me and do everything I asked. Therefore, she would not adore me for me but rather because she was too afraid not to.

John you are missing something here - the law of unintended consequences. For every action we take there is a consequence. If we reject God there is consequence. If we accept him there is also a consequence. Free will is not free will if each decision you take arrives at the same result.

JG: but you could look at it this way .. you are simply sooo adorable, so lovable.. if a girl didn't fall for you, your love, and what you have to offer her.. she should be doomed :lol

Why do I not believe that this is one of your original insights? I wonder....

Why does this terrible affliction have to spill over onto another thread?

One Chico is bad enough, imagine a whole church full of them <shudders>

Sandy - please have a word with Chico and lend him your sense of humour he seems to have mislaid his.

I'm trying to fight a rearguard action with similarly named humorous threads. Please feel free to back me up

Will a willing wage slave do instead?

wageslave are you willing to be a sex slave if someone pays you wages for for being a sex slave or would you do it for free??? there's a clear distinction here!!

Absolutely. I mostly visit the Pentacostal Faith website now, you get a decent thread about tax or New Labour or house prices over there. I never thought I would miss our wall to wall house price threads.
