God is truly democratic, do not press or force the people obeyed; God may be as good parent who never ask for a reward of his love to his children

God is democratic

The Bible describes that before the entrance of sin, peace and joy permeate the universe, everything works in harmony with the will of God. Since man was created, God had given man freedom of volition in order to provide voluntary service to God. God may be as good parents who never ask for a reward of their love to their children. And they always give responsible freedom to their children based on the norm of life. But if the children abusing their freedom and coming out of the norm of life may not be pleased in front of their parent’s even parents might throw. Adam and Eve was abused the God’s norm; as a result they were removed from the presence of God (see Genesis 3: 3, 6, 17)

The word of “freedom” that I understand is morally and psychologically specify options that is not enforced. God is truly democratic, do not press or force the man obeyed, but humans are also reminded of the sanctions like what we experienced in social life today, there are legal norms governing. The God’s norm was clearly "Do you eat, you'll die". Humans are given the freedom to eat or not with knowing sanctions. It turns out that people do not care about the legal norm and its sanctions, people want to indulge the desire for them self. That is a sign of contradiction that destroy the harmonious relationship between man and God, even to destroy order of life in society.

Who influences the attitude of human freedom? Human desire is commanded by the center of body, called Lev or levav (Hebrew), or Heart. Human tend to behave or act is determined by the heart, and from it tend to produce only evil (Gen. 6: 5). The heart is a thinking (Mk: 2: 6.8) and a feeling (Luk: 24: 32). The Hebrews speaks that the nature of the human heart including all nature, physical, intellectual, and soul as a whole, so that the heart is a synergy between soul, mind and strength. Therefore Mark 7: 21-23: says: For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. How cunning heart, more cunning than anything (Jer 17: 9)

Having regard to the spiritual sense, the heart becomes the main purpose of God established. So the law of God is not something that is beyond human beings, but all are written in the heart. Lord search the heart and minds to give rewarded with the behavior and actions (Jer 17: 10). Therefore, in every chance, I always pray to God to investigate, identify and make my heart clean. The pure in heart shall see God, and be able to understand the love of God (Mat: 5: 8; Eph: 3: 17)
