|Question / Comment - Confusion over forgiveness|
saying that when someone becomes a Christian, God takes away their
freedom to reject Him?
thanks for the email.
Can I ask why you are asking? Are you thinking of rejecting the
Lord? No, didn't think so. The question, for me at least, isn't so
much 'could a born again child of God reject God and lose their
salvation' (which I assume is where you are leading) but 'would a
born again child of God' do that? Do we have that freedom. Yes. I
could yell out at the top of my lungs right now that I hate God and
reject Him. Would I do that? No. Why? Because His Spirit lives in me
and has poured the love of God into my heart. It is God who works in
believers both to 'will and to do'. That is, He is at work in my
life conforming me to His will.
