more on making choices

(Written on December 1, 2011 in my journal)

Father, how can people who grow up in totally messed up, screwed up environments, be expected to make "right choices" (spiritually), especially when the supposed purveyors of the "right choice" (like the government and churches and clergy and all who ran the residential schools) seem to have ultimately been the causes (or at least deeply complicit in) the mess?

It really does seem to me right now that, in practical terms, a lot - maybe a majority overall - of people don't have a real "choice."  But You said You came to save the "world." 

And so many other "buts" ... on both sides of the free choice/sovereignty issue ... which suggest that neither "side" holds the whole truth.

Am I right (a bit anyway) about that? Maybe? Father?
