A being without a will

31 March 2018

Even though God knew of Adam and Eve’s disobedience in paradise, He didn’t prevent it. Had he done so, He’d have intervened and done away with our freedom, which He Himself had given us. If you take away freedom, then the way we live our lives, even our salvation, would be enforced. We’d have no personality and we’d exist as passive beings. God preferred to change His plans for us rather than deprive us of the main feature of our personality, our freedom.
