Clearly. Your response has just led me to believe that the god of christianity wills a person to heaven or to hell. Judgements are flaws not present in an omnipresent. If an entity is stuck with a choice of this or that, that entity cannot be a being in which no greater exists because a being that no greater exists has no flaws. Choices are truely relative in which many try to explain the relativity, but lack the insight. This is why an omnipresent cannot be percieved out side the realm of experience, so "YOU" need scripture to help you out. That scripture seems fine, but its insights into perception of relative ideas is non-existent. Far short of a being in which no greater exists.
: : I would like to request a explanation of free will in a world created by an omniscient, omnipresent God. Can anyone provide a rational, logical argument? I find this point fairly impossible to explain. I'd like to hear the thoughts of any roving theologians on this matter.
