Free Will is about Love; Without Free Will there is No Relationship

~@ROliverLuce | 04-27-15

Calvinism in Christianity was born in the midst of European Catholicism and became part of America’s Christian foundation in the beginning. Our forefathers heeded the Lord in those days but have since then we are learning from the scriptures and the revelation of God in nature that God is a relational Lord who loves us so, even as a hurricane!

The Chief Reason why “free will” is important to God is attitude and the acceptance of His Covenant Word. For without a receptive and a repenting attitude and a willingness to accept God’s Covenant Word, His Son, there is only the rejection of God’s love and there is no salvation without blood. Blood was the payment for the law of sin & death to be released so we can be free through His payment.

So God showed His love by paying this debt. And it must be said, love can never be dictated nor demanded a relationship. God, after all, is the author of what relationships are supposed to mean!

Law and judgment are that cause alone, the dictating of righteousness to ensure it is the rule. And that rule is the requirement that the law of sin and death be fulfilled for which God did demonstrate His love through His Son dying to pay that debt of the law of sin and death.  So, again, we might be saved from it and thereby doing it with a willing Spirit through the promise and the encouragement of His living Word!

Therefore, it is up to the inheritors of salvation to believe, to accept, and to receive the gift that was paid! A gift of salvation free of the law of sin and death.

Who are the inheritors? Those of us who have been born on the earth. We have that choice between the spirit of life (salvation from ourselves) or the spirit of death (separation from God) for eternity.

And with all this said. It’s the Father’s Covenant that is dependent on our agreement to accept a gift of God’s living Word. That Word sealed a deal on His only Covenant that we might accept His way and not find our own way, to god, in knowing the difference between good and evil. Always searching for a set of laws that we might lean back and enjoy our self-created righteousness and joys without God’s presence and help.

Calvinism Can Simply be Milk to Believers in Christ. Older Christians are Stunted in the Wisdom of the WORD

Stunted in my Growth?  No! Can’t be!
I simply ignore God’s confirmation of His Word in Creation, that’s all.
Yep, you’re stunted.

Calvinism can and should only be associated with new Christians who need the milk of the WORD yet in order to understand the truth and how it relates to real life in Christ Jesus.

The milk of the Word means those Christians who have not grown enough to experience Christ in their lives to gain the wisdom to handle the Word of truth in tough everyday situations.

Well, some Christians have been stunted in the belief that Calvinism is the truth for all time not understanding wisdom to go on building precept upon precept in order to see more clearly in their everyday lives. It is true as it says in the Word of God, that we once were seeing through a glass darkly! But now we see much more clearly with the help of the Living Word of God!

Those Christians who are stunted are simply doomed to high ivory towers of intellectualism with wonderful sounding proverbs that may not have the experience of the Father’s Covenant of salvation in action! That action must come in real world situations where God can act and deliver and interact personally with YOU as an “inheritor of salvation” that only Calvinistic angels can only dream. God surely is not in the business of creating more angels.

God is creating more “inheritors of salvation” whosoever will choose His love over any other distraction and god (toys or agendas) of this world! If you and I were born into this world, the Earth, then we have BEEN CHOSEN from God the Father to become “inheritors of Covenant” if we choose HIS Word of Life to LIVE inside of us. Then HE is able to give us LIFE and STRENGTH to live with Him and overcome THIS WORLD ruled temporarily by Satan.

Praise His majesty the Lord!
