Freedom is Slavery

When someone is your master, your choices are their choices, and their choices are your choices. That is, you do what they choose for you to do, even if you don't understand it, and what you do reflects on them, especially if you disagree with them.

Satan made it seem that God's choices for us to fulfill were oppressive and took something away from our existence; moreover, he made it seem as though the choices he would have us do were simply ours.

However, Satan's choices and freedom to sin end with chaos, entropy, and heat-death. God's choices put in place a stable arena of freedom that is sustainable. It is this mixup that causes so much trouble for Adam's house, and for the God who only wants the best for them.

In being a slave to God, we are free in ways impossible under Satan's freedom, which binds us to Satan's fate: the fate of a traitor, exiled from the Kingdom of Light.
