Is the will of God stronger than the will of man?
1Tim2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
There is no comparison to be made to this question. God's will is of course stronger. But the verse you have expressed must be read further into the chapter talking about Jesus Christ being the mediator.
Oh yes I forgot. Mans free will is sovereign over Gods will.
I never said Christ was not a deity. Like usual, always putting words in my mouth J.
10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, “My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”
11 From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfil my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.
12 Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from my righteousness.
Therefore if the Father will have all men to be saved, he WILL have it done whether men like it or not, or reject it or not.
'Old law"? Do you think that what the Father said in the Hebrew scriptures is now irrelevant, somehow crossed out? He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If this is 'old law', then he must've changed his mind about his will being done.
Jesus Christ created the new law after the crucifixion.
"Our Father who art in Heaven. Hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE....."
Looks like Jesus just disagreed with you. Or are you just being obtuse?
His prayer has nothing to do with the new and old law. God of course has not changed just the law. Do you still sacrifice animals, are you Jewish? Jesus was the final sacrifice. His blood is sufficient.
Jesus gave a new covenant as the next stage on from the Mosaic Law. But please pray tell what has the Father's declaration that his will will be done in Isaiah 46 got to do with the Mosaic Law? Jesus confirmed his will be done.
Jer 32:17...Nothing is too hard for you.
Well according you J, man,s free will prevents Him from doing His will.
God is omnipotent, all powerful. We are his creations so there is no question that God's will is stronger than man's.

I was in class today talking about culture and religion. A student from my class asked, "Do everyone need to know who is Jesus Christ?" Some people in my class don't believe in 'GOD'...therefore, I would like to know what you think.

...when Jesus clearly said 'My Father is Greater than I' in John 14:28?Nothing can be greater than God, so by Jesus' own words, we can deduce that Jesus did not profess to be God, because he professes that there is a power Greater than him (Jesus). Why then do many Christians firmly believe that...

Has these titles, which are often used to describe Christ's relationship with God, been taken out of context? Or do you honestly believe that Jesus Christ is God's son? I wonder, can a person still be a Christian, and yet believe that Christ is not the son of God? What are your...
