You're making it sound as if 'free choice' and 'death' go hand in hand. :)
Exercising free choice does not mean that you're going to die sooner than you're supposed to. By the same token, bowing before God will not guarantee a long life for you.
We have an inherent right to exercise 'free will' but with that right, we are burdened with a duty to act responsibly and in the interest of humanity.
Having a choice to do what we want to, doesn't mean that we have the right to do any damn thing (we like) on this earth.
God doesn't want us to bow before him. What he wants from us is to live in peace,harmony and synergy with all the elements of His creation. Sadly enough, when we find ourselves incapable of doing what God intended us to do, we start blaming Him for all our failures/ frustrations/ unfulfilled desires. We make our own lives complicated and when things go out of control, the simplest thing we can do is to throw the blame at Him. This is highly unbecoming of human race.
