Last night at church we watched a video with John Bevere called Under Cover. It was excellent. there were some great points, like how Adam and Eve resisted Gods authority and later tried to get back under the same covering they had earlier wanted out of. We tend to think we will be free if we escape authority, but real freedom is found in submitting to God. Not SUBJECTION to God. We are not forced! We choose to follow Him, and find out "Whoa! I am FREE."
Example: Lets say I decide God is stupid and I should be able to drink and party all I want. Then I find myself a slave to those things, they take hold of me and make me act dumb and I face a lot of losses. If I then instead decide to follow God (talking christian belief here) I find I no longer desire those things and they no longer have a grip on me!
You are submitting to god is submitting to your higher self or to your inner self and its the best thing one can do.
Good or bad?
Both, & neither. It all depends on the circumstance. If I am required to submit to authority, say Police directing traffic, it's good.
If a salesman wants to "sell" me something I don't want or need and I submit to the presuure, that's bad.
As far as submission to the will of God, (provided I know it) is always good. To reject His will (universal will...say salvation etc) is bad.
I think its to do with end results. Will they be good for me, or detrimental?
