On FREE will

 

Psalm 37:23-24

King James Version

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: 

and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, 

he shall not be utterly cast down: 

for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.


What is free will?

Do we really have free will?

A born again understands well.

For we live by the Bible.

We know GOD's laws.

We know the consequences of sin.

We know the promises of CHRIST.

We know who to follow.

We know what to do.

All through the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD.

These compassionate verses from the Bible give us the power and freedom to choose:

Genesis 2:16-17

King James Version

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, 

saying,

Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it: 

for in the day that thou eatest thereof 

thou shalt surely die.


Deuteronomy 30:19

King James Version

19 I call heaven and earth 

to record this day against you, 

that I have set before you life and death, 

blessing and cursing: 

therefore choose life, 

that both thou and thy seed may live:


Psalm 119:45

King James Version

45 And I will walk at liberty: 

for I seek thy precepts.


Proverbs 16:9

King James Version

9 A man's heart deviseth his way: 

but the Lord directeth his steps.


Mark 8:34

King James Version

34 And when he had called the people unto him 

with his disciples also, 

he said unto them, 

Whosoever will come after me, 

let him deny himself,

 and take up his cross, 

and follow me.


John 1:12

King James Version

12 But as many as received him, 

to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 

even to them that believe on his name:


John 6:47

King James Version

47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.


John 7:16-17

King James Version

16 Jesus answered them, 

and said, 

My doctrine is not mine, 

but his that sent me.

17 If any man will do his will, 

he shall know of the doctrine, 

whether it be of God, 

or whether I speak of myself.


1 Corinthians 10:13

King James Version

13 There hath no temptation taken you 

but such as is common to man: 

but God is faithful, 

who will not suffer you to be tempted 

above that ye are able; 

but will with the temptation 

also make a way to escape, 

that ye may be able to bear it.


2 Corinthians 3:17

King James Version

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.


Galatians 5:16-18

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, 

ye are not under the law.


1 Timothy 2:4

King James Version

4 Who will have all men to be saved, 

and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.


1 Timothy 2:5

King James Version

5 For there is one God, 

and one mediator between God and men, 

the man Christ Jesus;


2 Timothy 2:23

King James Version

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, 

knowing that they do gender strifes.


2 Timothy 2:24-26

King James Version

24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; 

but be gentle unto all men, 

apt to teach, patient,

25 In meekness instructing 

those that oppose themselves; 

if God peradventure will give them repentance 

to the acknowledging of the truth;

26 And that they may recover themselves 

out of the snare of the devil, 

who are taken captive by him at his will.


James 1:5

King James Version

5 If any of you lack wisdom, 

let him ask of God, 

that giveth to all men liberally, 

and upbraideth not; 

and it shall be given him.
