Of course, we all have a choice. Hence we are tribal. Otherwise we would just be robots following the same instructions.
And if we were robots following the same instructions, whose instructions should we follow and why them out of everyone elses. Why should I give up my beliefs to follow yours, or vice versa?
The subject of free will is fraught with age old arguments.
I see true freedom as being "one" with the only true freedom i.e. Reality-as-is. God. Until then our "freedom" is always corrupt in various ways, our choices determined by conditioning, by the cards dealt us at birth.
There is, as I see it, an original unity
beyond all divisions. The divisions we see now, and to which you appeal, are not final, nor a result of "free will". Beyond such divisions and tribal allegiances can be, and will be, the beauty of difference
when truth is found in each unique human being, the one truth expressed expressed in infinite ways.
And Na can consider this the answer to his own totally predictable post drawn from his own time conditioned biblical hermeneutical methodology which can be easily overthrown now by anyone seeking deeper meanings in any scripture.
