Sense of free will

They say that all is going to a purpose ... that we do not understand, perhaps, but while he's there.Ok, so it is, but for me, this explanation, I reconciled. Do not make me feel less or more easily pass over the effects of what is happening other than it would be. Do not make me understand why people do wrong knowingly, do not make me more likely to accept that children die never have got to understand what life is, I do look forward to the future without thinking sadly at present. Things happen because ... I do not know what happens. Those who do not make us better. One view would say that is because it "is given", that's just destiny line "God wanted it to be." Hmmm ... Another would say that all things that happen are consequences of free will that man is endowed, that everything living is a consequence of their actions. Okay. But not all depend entirely on himself. And free will, that is, anyway? A gun or a burden? The burden of choice? Freedom that free will is extremely limited. actually. It's awfully conditioned. In everything we do must take into account many, too many factors to obey too many rules to follow too much convenience. And then, what remains? Let's say "that's life" and to accept, leaving eyes, all the hardships? Or we fought with it? Ok, how long? And actually, why? Sense that that is?

I agree with you. I believe taht the answer is someone between the will of God and the free will of man. We can not talk about the choice of God, because no one has proven taht God exist, as well as no one provet there is no God, so we can not focus on something that is presumed to exist. Yet, we can not talk about our free will, when we are so conditioned by the world taht we live in. Full free will could exist if no law or external conditions. We could name "free will" the actions that one takes during life, regardless of what he is told by other people to do, but it would be so limited, unlike the true free will that can exist in an ideal theory.

I believe that free will is actually separate from religion. Being religious does not necessarily mean being trapped, nor does it mean being completely free. I think having free will is up to each man/woman, to pursue his or her life to the fullest and do what makes him or her happy. I think being religious and following a certain religion falls UNDER the category of what makes a person happy instead of governing it. We should be separate from our lives and emotions, be a person above, controlling their lives instead of a person who is being controlled by their lives. That is where true free will lies.
