MAN''S THOUGHT AND GOD'S THOUGHT

    Man's thought is always about the punishment that will come to him if he sins, but God's thought is the loss of His glory in man when he sins. The truth is that we lose our inherent divine integrity (God's glory in us) when we sin.

    THE WAY OUT IS TO STAY CLOSE TO GOD ALWAYS. By so doing you will be ever conscious of His presence with and in you ultimately, because all sin begins with doing what "self" wants for self. That is, what carnal mind desires for carnal man.

      Speaking through the ancient Hebrew prophet Isaiah God had something to say about humany's thoughts & his thoughts: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.  As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

      In that context, we humans are groping around in the dark.  Go look at a sky so blue it hurts your eyes & try figuring out how far away it is; or a starlit night? 

      Only by God's constant grace can we ever develop a God-centric worldview;  only with great doses of God's grace can we ever hope to stay close & keep our lives aligned with his purposes.

      If we can’t do what we want to (Self) then we don’t have FREEWILL.

    That's quite a generalisation, as evidenced by the fact that you have in no way approached my thought. I wouldn't presume to define "Man's thought". It's doomed to failure, as we are so many and varied.

      Ok, dont generalize a man's thought, what will be the result then???

      well, you will get some what similar to the criminal society of USA and Europe. Go a head, respect each and every ones thought of about 6 billion people.

    Oh well - that's one for and one against smile

    Kind of proves my point about trying to generalise on Man's thoughts. Only 50% success so far...

    You've lost me a bit on this one, but my assumption is that the creative force is acting through me, therefore my thoughts are influenced by the creative force, and I'm given free will to choose which to focus my attention on.

    Of course, if the creative force is not flowing through me, then it is not influencing my thoughts and resides outside of me, somewhere outthere.

    I prefer to build a belief system where I have freewill and access to the creative force. This seems to me to empower people and give rtespect to the traditions which have existed before this particular time in history.

    i am assuming that you have to know his thoughts in order to make this assumption but how can you when man changes everything he touches (bible). unless god speaks to you personally you can never truly know his words.please correct me if i am wrong.

    All thoughts are creative, my role is to choose those which get my attention, there is no thought which is not creative, either in a positive or negative way if given human attention.

    I like what RALWUS said, "Well God made the Idiot for practice, and then sent them here" that is funny. In my opinion this is like a training simulation. During the time of conception you have all these sperm cells that try to enter the egg, & obviously they don't all get in. I think that our life here on this earth is alot like that. We are by our very nature striving for something, however base or honorable our endeavors may be, but those who strive for the right target increase their chances of entering into eternity. A good place to start is by getting our thoughts in tune with God's thought. So I agree totally with Osa.

    God created man with a freewill to choose life and blessings or death and curses, then he said, you choose which one you want. Then God fulfills your wishes.God said, If you keep my commandments this is your love to me and your fellow man. And it you keep my commandment this is my love to you!
       God planted you here on this eareth with no knowledge of Him and under the control of Satan the god of this world. Your thoughts are the thoughts of Satan and are at war with God and they always will be till you study God's will and apply his commandments to your life.

      So Satan is not a creation of God ? I thought God created everything , Good and Evil.
      So he's an entity as powerful as God. He is a god ! Wow ! He's not a mere fallen angel any more! That's a revelation. He's a creationist as well! creationist of evil. So who will won at last ?

        GOD a mythical figure perpetuated by deceitful actions.

        SATAN is mythical character to balance the equation of GOD.

        You cannot have one without the other.....GOOD/Evil.

        Neither ever existed and never will.
