| | Free Will
For the purpose of this discussion, lets assume for a second that there is a God and we are spiritual beings beyond just the human life we encompass right now. Meaning, we're not just biological blobs of chemicals that are born, and then die and cease to exist.
What kind of God doesn't matter. By God I don't just mean the Christian kind. You can substitute the word for Universe, Supreme Being, Allah, etc. etc. I just mean some form of supreme organizing power.
Now, lets assume that the supreme being grants us free will to do whatever we want for eternity. How would this being, giving us complete free will, prevent us from accidentally using that free will to take away our own free will? Meaning, would this being have a rule set which says "You can do whatever you want, you can have total free will and I will not step in and change anything. You express yourself whatever way you want. However, if you accidentally have the intention to live a life without free will via a single or multiple decisions which end up imprisoning you inside your own self, I will have to step in and free you from the jail you created for yourself because if I allowed you to have the free will to take away your own free will then that wouldn't be free will anymore."
Do you guys get the "gist" of what I'm saying? Supposed we all had free will but then we accidentally took it away from ourselves by a stupid decision to see what life would be like with less choices. Wouldn't this supreme being have some form of protection system in place to give us back our free will so we dont' have to suffer for eternity in our own self-made prisons?
Just a random thought to see if anyone's thought about this.
