Many of us regret and feel bad when we do actions or have thoughts that displease God. Would it not be nice if we could avoid those kind of feelings? Would you want to possess incorruptibility, which is the automatic ability to only choose to do the right thing, all the time?
Of course to have incorruptibility, we would have to give up our freedom of choice? There seems to be a trade-off in the equation.
What exactly does having incorruptibility mean? It means that you would automatically, without any struggling in the process of making a decision, always decide to dothe right thing. You would never, ever again, choose to do evil.
You would never be tempted to do evil. In every decision and in every possible choice, you would always choose the good, for to do evil would not exist in your makeup anymore. The possibility of ever doing evil or going astray is gone forever.
At this time, we have freedom of choice. We can go in either direction; it is up to us,our decision, and our choice. There could be a temptation before us but with incorruptibility we would always choose the good. The evil would have no appeal, no pull whatsoever. We would have no desire to do bad. It is gone forever from our makeup.
Is incorruptibility a possibility?
It is interesting that the Bible speaks of such an occurrence in 1 Corinthians 15:42-54 when describing a heavenly resurrection, the possibility of living in heaven with God, Jesus and the angels. Please read it yourself for the full details.
Why did God not give us incorruptibility in the first place?
He could have done that but then what would we be? We would be something that we did not choose. It seems that God holds out that possibility of being incorruptible but it a choice, rather than an imposition.
Is it not incorruptibility an interesting thought and an interesting possible choice?
