One of the best things that has happened in my life... loving and being loved..has been truly blessed... with the Father's love guiding me.. feeding me.. I feel this enhanced ability to give and receive love...so grateful indeed. :D :biggrin:

I share these feelings, even I have crossed this sea.

2:5.2 It is wrong to think of God as being coaxed into loving his children because of the sacrifices of his Sons or the intercession of his subordinate creatures, “for the Father himself loves you.” It is in response to this paternal affection that God sends the marvelous Adjusters to indwell the minds of men. God’s love is universal; “whosoever will may come.” He would “have all men be saved by coming into the knowledge of the truth.” He is “not willing that any should perish.”

i am love. jesus did not save me. i'm glad tub gave me a knowledge of my thought adjuster, real revelation there. religion has a slight concept of the soul but nothing explained to the extent that tub does on the thought adjuster. if none should perish it will be interesting to find out the real story as to why so many mortals do not choose eternal life. i don't think tub is giving all the information these authors know about rebellion choices, whether it's a system sovereign or a lowly mortal.

Why not everyone chooses mortal life: there is a price involved and some do not feel the rewards are worth the price.

The price of eternal life is to will what God wills. At first it seems to be the hugest sacrifice that anyone can make. After all, free will is the greatest gift humans have gotten, and giving that up seems to be giving up the crux of being a human.

However, what will actually happen is that the said human will gain eternal life and will actually be granted real free will, without any bounds. The original free will in humans is very much limited but in a finaliter it will be limitless (to the extent we can ever hope to understand).

As for the information about rebellion choices, read papers "53. The Lucifer Rebellion" and "54. Problems of the Lucifer Rebellion". They will tell you need to know about how free will can make a choice that seems to be better than the will of God but proves to be much worse.

God will grant us all we need and really want - and then some more and then things that we cannot even imagine - but only if we are willing to do His will. It will also take some time, and thus we need to be patient.

now that i have become self-conscious of the assurance of the thought adjuster my faith has expanded my mind, ennobled my soul, reinforced my personality, augmented my happiness, deepened my spirit perception, and enhanced my power to love and be loved.
