Why does God give us free-will, yet we must follow his plan for our lives? We must be receptive and obedient. That does not sound like free-will to me. During this Lent season, I developed a well-formed conscience, I cannot commit the same sins I used without feeling a strong sense of guilt. I feel bad for committing sins that hurt others. I hate the idea I cannot do what I want with my own body. I just feel forced to submit to God’s will because ultimately He knows what is best for us. I must marry the man Christ wants for me and any afflictions I face, I mustn’t complain because Christ suffered worse. If I sin, which I WILL mostly like til the day I die, I will be punished for it. Humans are predisposed to sin though.
In my earlier post, I expressed a desire to act in pornographic films, except I do not want to embarrass my future self, hurt my father, damage my family’s reputation.
If I were intelligent enough and less sensitive, there are many sins I desire to commit but because of my personality, I cannot do them, it would hurt me.
If a sin does not hurt the doer, then why is it still a sin?
Maybe it may because I have a controlling, over-protective, although caring and loving father, maybe that is why I am so TURNED OFF by the idea of OBEYING CHRIST.
