OPINION: Free Will, And Government Oppression

File Photo

What is the meaning of life? Like our DNA, it is different for each of us as we utilize our talents, we leave our fingerprints on the future. God bestowed us with the gift of free will and the dominion over all other living things. This free will is unconditional, including whether to believe or not. Many believe man has evolved beyond the belief in God. The truth is, in all of recorded history we have not evolved at all, being of the same flesh easily swayed by evil. Men have chosen to have dominion over other men, denying them their right to free will and choice. This is the greatest evil of all. In the 20th century alone at least 160 million people were murdered by their own governments ruled by evil men.

Free will is meant to be used within the realm of the Ten Commandments or the Golden Rule. Believers living by the Golden Rule know their first obligation is to sustain oneself. Once accomplished, you should be fruitful and multiply within your ability to support a family and participate in a community. Your final obligation is charity for those unable to support themselves. Forced charity through government taxation is not charity at all. It is the usurpation of free will. We’ve a long way to go.
