Safely changing fundamental definitions in which life is lived: New Creation in Jesus Christ destroys the stability on which any free will based morality depends


New creation destroys the foundations of any morality produced by an idealized free will by the means of introducing new elements or changed elements on which the free will based morality depended. These new introductions of elements or changed elements as growth phases act as both replacements and as simple growth of the whole environment, pushing aside the placement of former concepts and spirits. The movement in the mind of the individuals, the changing of the individuals into new spiritual creatures and the changing of the overall environment in which non-new creatures in Jesus Christ and new creatures in Jesus Christ live, and on which a well organized, stable morality depended, acts to destroy the organization of that morality and thus the hope placed in it to be proof offered to God of goodness. The morality itself dissolves as its constituent elements / spirits are changed or even moved slightly.

It is not simply a matter of a change in basic principles and thus a swapping of ideology by the same creature in the same, unchanged environment. Such a thing is never the case as new creation is on-going by God at all times. But the pretense of such self-change or idealized collective-of-autonomous-selves as societal change is a common theme of moralities that depend on free will and itself is only differing formulas for choice among a  group of elements idealized to be eternally static or changing so slowly that the change will in no way effect the idealized present choosier because of mortality. The morality as an  end product of a lifetime of choice is then idealized to be eternally beneficial.

Righteous Morality before God is non-changing because they only depend on God Himself: the blood of Christ and the Word and Power of God. The free will based models of morality seek to mimic God’s never changing judgment as a principle of static power and environment by implying a free will that is never bound AND yet static elements that are as unchanging as God from which to build behavior that impresses God that one is supposedly righteous without the need for grace of God and without new creation in Jesus Christ. By the definition of free will morality, if God or any other thing out of which morality is built changes, the morality itself is overthrown; it morphs into something else when either the environment out of which it is built changes or the thing to which it is applied changes.

The post at John Shore.com “Does God Control or persuade? Is His future what we make of it?” is a classic example of an attempt by hard core believers in free will to tweak definitions of reality for the specific purpose of keeping intact their former notions of morality the deeper they go toward a God that they idealize as a God that  gave them free will. A quoted comment within the article is:

“God can’t be both all-powerful (in the sense of controlling, coercive power) and all-good/all-loving. You have to choose between the two, or you have to redefine the nature of God’s power. Or BOTH.

The implied reason for why “you have to choose between the two or you have to redefine..” is simply to keep the notion of free will viable and the former morality that depends on that idealized free will staying free, remaining eternally good before that pre-re-defined God. They have not even noticed that by redefining God they have changed the composition of their own morality and yet want to keep their own morality intact as proof of eternal life is their primary concern.

They never see, in the rush to defend their present horde of supposed past moral actions, that they are doing a lifestyle of destruction of which they are unaware.

Thus the purposes of the lie of free will are seen: to deny a change in the creature ( oneself ) as being non-metaphorically born again in Jesus Christ, so that the idealized stable creature with its own versions of morality may seem eternal and thus relevant and to deny changes in the environment out of which the free will morality was built. In short, the lie of human free will must deny anything else can exist but the exact conditions that supposedly make it a fact that men have free will and the consequences of that denial are catastrophic to a successful life of the individual and society even in the present as they multiply hypocrisy and self-deceit.

By denying new creation on all levels, simply to protect the ideology of free will, reality is denied simply to have a false face of stability in which present beliefs can survive. That false stability is made to seem to produce morality to seem that the whole is an honest paradigm of being righteous.

Over time, those institutionalized in the lie of free will grow afraid of new creation and see it as their enemy, even as they deny its very existence as an ideological argument. A group of people with a notion of false moral stability which is based on an idealized absolute lack of new creation will be terrified if anyone mentions changing the definition of money, even as they must deny that the definition can be changed at all.

Questions those deceived free will exists must ask, in their most honest moments are: Who will be moral in the new paradigm?

How will that new morality be recognized? How will it effect choice?

If they are religious they will also ask: How will it effect being righteous in God’s eyes? Where are the rules to live by in the new paradigm so that the individual will know with certainty that one is a friend of God?

All such questions are a consequence of being in a lie yet living in reality, which is the fundamental condition of fallen men. Such concerns seem to them to be both common sense and piety. Yet to even dare to breathe such questions by them is an admission of the outlook on morality as unreliable that they actually have and a reliance on a vague notion of grace. But the grace they rely on as an adjunct to free will is to them, by definition, something that cannot interfere with the idealized free will and thus cannot be new creation of the creature that has the idealized free will and cannot jiggle the table on which is built their entire house of moral cards.

In Christ, as new creature, one sees one’s own new birth as favor from God and thus a trust in God is immediate. New creation is then seen as both a friend and, as part of the nature of God, a standard part of reality. The grace of God in Christ is well understood to be part of new creation and there is no reliance on a static, non-growing, non-creating environment in which to assure oneself by one’s own moral code as one’s own witness that one is a friend of God. The very elements on which such a self-witness must rely are constantly changing and growing. God then is the only reliable witness and those through whom He witnesses.

Romans 8:16  The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are children of God.

What we see is that any notion of free will, no matter how small or large, whether it is called libertarian free will or partial free will, manufactures a fear of reality as xenophobia and a total lack of creativity in addition to a loathing of creativity in others. Everything must remain as it is idealized to exist for the sole benefit of keeping intact a particular ideology in order for those old in any particular version of morality to idealize themselves as keeping the morality they have earned by self-will and constructed out of unchanging, immovable elements. If anything changes about themselves as creatures or about their physical and spiritual environment as ideology, the morality they have supposedly so carefully crafted for themselves dissolves in front of them.

The mixture of a few admissions that new creation exists, but viewed as merely a shift in some part of reality that already existed added to an idealized static morality only produces hopelessness and fatalism. Such people end up as zealots of the slogan ‘live for today’, denying even more of reality in the guise of embracing honest change.

Plainly free will theology is not simply a religious phenomenon or  a thing which only has religious implications. It applies to politics and society in every area as a stunting of creativity and as a xenophobia of creation, while claiming to be the sole path to personal salvation before God and prosperity.

Just as plainly, Calvinism is proved to be the honest truth of Jesus Christ that can be tested and found to be true over and over, even in the midst of new creation and ever changing environments, be they ideological, spiritual or physical, on which false moralities are built.

1. to change the definition of money necessarily changes the morality surrounding money, which bumps the table on which free will morality is busy faking righteousness and thus effects one’s eternal place of abode in those models .. but has no effect on Calvinism

ancillary: the present definition of money and trade is based on scarcity; not new creation of plenty. The idealized environment in which to keep the present definition of money in the public mind valuable is then static and one of maintained scarcity. The notion of fairness within the definition of money is also based on ‘spreading around’ what is idealized to be scarce. The whole evil show is based on non-creation.

2. to change models of government equally destroys the former security of free will based morality ..and doesn’t touch Calvinism

3. advances in technology destroy free will based notions of morality and safety of soul based on that morality ( and that is why you never see such advances as products of nations in which free will based religions reign: they all want to think their own models of morality are eternal and don’t want any change )  ..and never touches Calvinism

Why is Calvinism unchanged and unafraid of change no matter the amount of new creation or paradigm shifts? Being new creature in Jesus Christ and the common sense of on-going new creation is the truth of Calvinism; not merely theorizing about it or hoping for it.  Embracing new creation is then the Christian lifestyle and indeed, expectation, while trying vainly to hold on to idealized self-built morality by supposed free willed protectionism in favor of the ideological items out of which that morality was supposedly built is the standard lifestyle of all who are deceived they have even partial free will.

Those who are deceived they have even partial free will cling to the past and call it Tradition; are afraid of new things and end up destroying their own lands and each other. In the midst of a world financial crisis, which those who are hard core believers in free will have manufactured through their ideology and consequent actions, new creation and acknowledgment of God’s on-going new creation is needed, not simply a rearrangement of what already exists while an on-going denial of new creation and in denial of God in Jesus Christ is maintained. Both a quick look and in-depth research demonstrates that hard core free willers who call themselves pro-Christ but love the lie of human free will and loath Calvinism have been the destroyers and usurpers of all that God has formerly created other than new creatures in Jesus Christ / body of Christ and are solely responsible for the present destruction and international tensions according to their own definitions of reality.

After new creation in Jesus Christ, one lives in reality and not in lies and thus sees what the lie of human free will is ( and indeed, all lies are )  : a spiritual creature made up of particular elements of non-creating speech that is not eternal or a god; he-who-can-create-nothing. All those who live their lives in that creature will die and be death to all around them while clamoring about morality, ideals of fairness based on that false morality and change that is destructive.

Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion.

The first step in new things created in Christ for you is your own change of being. Thereafter, God lives in you and will both understand new creation and accomplish new creation through you.

1Peter 1:22-25  Having purified your souls by obedience to the truth to unfeigned brotherly love, love one another out of a pure heart fervently;  being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the living and abiding word of God.  Because all flesh is as grass, and all its glory as the flower of grass. The grass has withered and its flower has fallen;  but the word of the Lord abides for eternity. But this is the word which in the glad tidings is preached to you.


In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
