But when *he* is come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear he shall speak; and he will announce to you what is coming. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine and shall announce it to you. All things that the Father has are mine; on account of this I have said that he receives of mine and shall announce it to you. The time for belief in free will is passed; with its passing comes growth in Christ beyond what was not possible to say to a group of people deceived they could believe and do whatever they wanted to whenever they wanted it. The consequences of a belief in human free will are devastating. Yet it is the most popular belief in the whole world in any tongue of men and literally not a minute passes that somewhere, someone is specifically affirming human free will from the web, a podium, tv, magazine or radio in all areas of life. Not a sports event passes without a player beating his chest or raising his or her arms in the supposed display of his/her personal power over their opponent. Almost every commercial that markets a religion, ideology, politician, product or service appeals specifically to the supposed free will of the viewer and to the notion of saving that freedom from an aggressor or expanding that freedom for a better life. The presumption is that free will hasn't merely been proven to exist, but 'so proven' that to even doubt it is a kind of heresy against the human race and/or against God. Almost every major religion affirms that men have free will in one form or another; the belief in free will is the one meta that unites them all as one, large, false religion. The saying of false religion that 'all paths lead to God' really means 'all paths prove human free will'. Their presumption is that they have chosen to believe in free will --as an act of will-- and it is precious to them and that if you try to take that belief in free will from them, you are attempting to steal something invaluable both from them and from all of mankind. The religions that do not affirm a specific free will, seek to surreptitiously ( in code, by calling it something else ) proclaim an escape from the notion of human free will via an escape from being the self and entitle that escape Enlightenment or Ascension. Those religions are affirming how intertwined the deception of free will is to men: it is to some the archetypical expression of hope and of God's supposed benevolence while to others is the one thing that is so intertwined to the human spirit that if they can escape it, that escape is the proof of not being human any longer, but of 'Ascending' to a higher plain of existence in the guise of 'losing self consciousness' and thus notions of free will. The one laughs at the notion of those who would supposed 'make robots' of human beings by denying free will and the other is tired of the guilt of not being able to be a robot and the continued inability to always do the ideal behavior required to get to paradise via those other religions. (It is then an easy thing to see that the dichotomy of the Lord of the Rings is an essay praising eastern mysticism while supposedly denigrating 'the east': the bad guy wants to get all the free will for himself ( as if it existed at all and were a resource that could be extracted from others.. ) and the good guys are seeking to destroy 'evil' by destroying the notion of free will in Mt. Doom by destroying the 'power' of the one who puts his hope in abilities other people's slavery to the belief in free will can deliver to him. The one wants to 'use it' as if it could be stolen or misused minus its personal insights and the other is seeking out-from-under the notion of free will itself. )
It is then plain that while you may think human free will exists, and you may have the comfort of a lot of other people affirming that you do, you are not free to just stop believing that in an instant, especially in front of others who are essential guardians of the notion and genuinely constitute the priest class of the deception. It is both an ability issue and a safety issue. While those religions that seek to get to an Enlightened state of dis-belief in free will say they have obtained it or that at least they know of someone who used their system and made it Out, it is obvious that they have not. It is obvious that somewhere, someone understood the difficulty of getting out of a belief in free will; they understood just how free they would actually be if they could simply stop believing they were free to do whatever they pleased even in some limited way. Yet, just as those who are guilty in false religion are made guilty because they fail to be a robot and do the ideal behaviors perfectly ( and that exact guilt is the power of the priest class and is essential to the survival of that religion ) and yet assumed they had the free will to do those behaviors and are constantly told that they do, the others mourn over the inability to stop believing in free will and the inability to be a robot that performs the particular trick of getting out of a belief in free will. Even as both make fun of Calvinism for supposedly making men ideological robots, they wish they really could be a robot in some fashion. But of course, no one can be a robot. It can't happen. There's the rub. You can get into a battle over free will that is essentially gainsaying what the other person has just said. It basically goes "Yes you do!" ( have free will ) only to hear "No you don't!" and thus the whole understanding of why the deception of human free will is necessary for some to maintain power over others and why belief in free will is non-Christian and demonic is reduced in the public mind to the mere gainsaying of another's belief system for one's personal satisfaction. The theory of the day is that basically, if you do not affirm free will for human beings, you only do so because you are a mean person and a bigot who hates the idea of generic freedom dispersed to all of men and/or you are simply a querulous person that loves to be involved in debate as a hobby ..as an expression of your free will. In addition, anyone who is arguing for free will is assumed to be a kind of altruist who loves mankind and is simply an explorer for truth who has no other reasons for maintaining the deception of free will at all costs. This book is written to all those who ever wondered if free will actually exists, want to get beyond the gainsaying, manipulation and the politicization of the argument as its own sport and see what the result of the mere belief in free will is doing as a consequence, if anything. It is indeed having consequences. Despite the love of many of merely repeating "There is no point in knowing if free will exists. Determinism says that the same thing will happen to me anyway!" the deception of free will drives its own consequences: those consequences are exclusively a product of a belief in free will. True determinism in Christ is not an iron band of inevitability save only in salvation and reprobation. The false determinism that those within the lie of human free construct is fatalism: they make fun of it as supposedly a product of Calvinism and yet those deceived they have free will are the only fatalists that can exist. The consequences of the lie of human free will abound in every area of life: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The spirit and soul Science and mathematics Language and all languages touches Security and the military Politics and government
6. Health and medicine 7. Education and learning 8. Relationships and family This book will hopefully warn you and bless you in Christ. I pray that it will also get you off the cycle of proud-to-be-hopeless, wherein you are made proud to be supposedly personally powerful by supposedly having free will, but in addition to not actually having it and thus not being able to 'make it work', and thus always being frustrated why the tool that supposedly works for everyone else isn't working for you, and seeing ( as a larger part of the deception ) that the collective of other people's supposed free will is supposedly larger and smarter than your single free will, becoming hopeless: being made to see yourself as worthless to effect a good change for anyone, to include yourself by the very tool that supposedly empowers 'everyone else'. Free of the deception of free will, you have true compassion on other people in Christ. Within the lie of human free will, you can only see other people as simply stupid to not believe what you believe ..no matter what you believe.
