    Gods perfect plan has always been in existence.!!!

    Satan-God is the same entity in both roles… so the only “sin” held accountable is by humans.!!!

    Sins such as murder are more like casualties of war… sesual encounters is mainly what God is concerned about.!!!

    Its sorta a mute pont if any judge attempted to rule against God sinse they woud likely wind up as a toad in hell.!!!

    In Heaven… all are content… no more sin… no more sufferin.!!!

    The feel/visual of Heaven i get from God impresses me as bein somewhat like the pic below.!!!

    No, you can (there is a possibility to do so, so free will), this doesen't mean you are actually doing sin...
    You sin as soon as you factualy eat from the knowledge tree (for this particular example), not as you plan to do so.
    Thats the difference i think you dont take in account.

    No, you have free will, like my rabbit whose domain is so big that he doesent need to go outside his domain to feel free.
    You have free will like the rabbit that cant jump from the building without concequence.

    You got it.
    Like i am my rabbits master, God is my Master.

    Yes you can, but you should not.

    Instructions or orders are the same here.
    If as a child your father say to you, "dont put you hand into the fire", he is doing this for your own good, it can be understand as an order, an instruction or an advise.

    This is trivialy true, like the Man and every creation.
    Angels are some expressions of God, but i would not say Satan-God or Angel-God, God is "The All" that we cant understand, Angels etc are some expression of God we can understand a bit more.

    This is an intriguing question. One near death experiencer who was an Atheist at the time of his NDE was shown that Free Will will be DECREASED over the next two centuries as the earth is made to be much less violent.

    I know this is not straight forward but ... you are wrong.
    You can not sin in heaven, and (simultaneously) you have free will.
    What you dont understand (if i understand well) is that sin can not exist in heaven, so... sin is outside heaven per facto.
    There is no delay, there is fact.
    Heaven is perfect and can not have sin inside of it, even a quick instant.

    To understand, let us take an example with something that spread so fast that for us on earth it looks like it act instantly.
    Let say there is one room with no light, and there is one room with light.
    Let say sin is light (it is not, but it is to understand, you could say it is antilight, so darkness, but we dont think this way on earth, so forget this).
    So heaven here is the room with no light and earth is the room with light.

    The definition of the room, his property, his conceptual being, is that there is no light in heaven.
    It is not like on earth where physicality rules the form, here in the perfect world, God's Word rule the form.
    So, if there is light (there is sin, this is the fact) it is not compatible with the definition of heaven, with the Word "Heaven".
    But it is compatible with earth, the physicalist "room" (or some sort of hell) that exists because of contradiction, ruled by the contradictor.

    So where is the sin ?
    In earth with "lucifer", not in heaven.
    Both properties, position and light, swap together instantly because it is conceptual, not physical...

    It is an other way to think, there is no cause preceding effect, just conceptual compatibility.

    A reason YOU choose one fork in the road IS your free will in action

    What those who say you do not have free will are those who talk (mean) a almost infinite number of CAUSE - EFFECT reactions

    Beginning at the Big Bang there has been in motion a continuous chain of, figuratively speaking, falling dominoes. And yes you would be unaware of the falling dominoes causing the action of your free will and so continue with your illusion you do have free will

    It (free will) however seems to have a friend in Quantum Mechanics which appears to have events happening with no discernible cause

    Such action could be likened to a complete new pattern of dominoes replacing all future dominoes just before the last past dominoe strikes

    Of course this concept does not eliminate the debate while it does, to my mind, eliminate (change the history of non living stuff) which of course totally lacks free will

    The total Quantum Mechanics effects in operation within the sphere of a person's influence is unknown but even if free will is found to be an illusion (I doubt it will be) I'm happy to join with the illusion and call it free will

    If you write the above in comprehensible English you have a chance of being understood

    I am prety sure there will be some who will understand even with my bad english.

    Saying, "this is not comprehensible" and showing a long text composed of some sub parts saying many times the same with other words and you only says "you" dont understand...
    You aren't a puppy needed to be feeded.
    If you want to understand (or not but it is up to you), you can do as anyone who want to real understand : You try to understand, you reformulate what you have understood, second party adjust his talk, you reformulate etc.
    This is not a question of language, it is a question of method.

    Many people around the world do so : They repeat many time the same, with other words, the one who listen explain what he has understand, and the discussion adjust to fit the real expression of the mind.

    If you think someone can understand at firts time something you say ... it is because he always know it.
    Why do you say something he already know ?
    Ego.

    True.... the vibrational levels in heaven are so high that selfish thoughts are impossible there......
    Selfishness lies at the heart and core of most sin!

    I am not sure about the "vibrational levels" or about the "energy".

    In my opinion, energy is what remain when we have associated all other measurment to facts.
    So yes, one could understand energy as the non physicalist part of this world, so spirit etc, but talking about this like that, refer by contradiction to "the material world" (the contradictor, the adversary) , so using the same type of knowledge as the contradictor, saying spirit exist by comparison to matter...

    I prefer to speak more clearly : Spirit is, and do not need matter to be.
    Same for God, He exists, without the need of Man.
    Word (conceptual tought) is sufficient to make something existing.

    Now... i remember some ancient toughts, where trying to understand God's situation (because i experienced myself some special situation where i was totaly disconnected from anything) i have imagined that knowing all, be capable of anything, with nobody else around, this would be a very lonyless situation and i even surprised myself having some pity for God (yes that sounds silly but i love God...).
    Without any other free will... you would be lonely.

    So ok, God with His creation, with Man or other creatures makes God how He actually is.
    I am not sure of that, because i am only a very very little one, so i appologise if did some stupid mistake trying to understand whats about (but at least it is the truth about what i think about this subject).
