Is it better to have free choice and die, or is it better to bow to god and 'live forever'?
If we are all damned for being born in the first place, and damned for just about anything we do, shouldn't we might as well tell God that this bullshit sucks?
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.
or we could just use our brains and realize that there is no god.
What the church calls free will and its eternal torment theology, is a joke. Because if there is a free will, according to the church, the price of free will will be more than what most can bear.

There is a conservative argument I've heard that goes something like this. So for now, I'm going to pretend like I accept this argument and try to do it justice. For a decision to be moral, it must be the result of free choice. We wouldn't claim that if a mad scientist were to...

Abortion and euthanasia, and suicide all require a cessation of life. For abortion it is a requirement for the cessation of life of the fetus. For euthanasia and suicide, it is a requirement by an already living and viable human being for life to come to an end, or to bring their life to an...

Is our destiny in God's hands or do we actually have free will, being that God knows all?
