Which best describes you, and why?
Subjection: it is mandatory. We are all subjects of the King of kings, and His word is final. It cannot be broken or altered.
For example: God spoke and created the Light. Now the light from the sun, and the stars, and the moon can give off or reflect
light: but the Light that was created on the first day is the only Light that "...lights every man that comes into the world."
Submission: It is voluntary. It can be associated with our "free will". We can pay honor, respect, or homage, or we can even demonstrate love to an individual. We open the door for our wives, help our children in many areas, let the elderly sit first, etc.
It is completely voluntary.
____________________________________________If I feel subjected I fear God. If I am submitted - something I am willing to be - I love God. I love God and I am thus submitted. I would hate a god that would force me to obey him! And a god like that would not show the ultimate in love: giving His life! Such a god would not use the word Love either!
Yes God makes laws and He makes higher laws that overcome lower laws. He makes laws in the Spirit that overcome the laws of the temporal realm.____________________________________________
God is the King: Has He not made laws that cannot be broken, and declared commandments and statutes. Can the Laws of Creation be broken or rescinded? Does not the creation of plants and animals, including man, rest upon those first seven Laws of Creation? Has man not been made subject to those laws, or what is the law of gravity?
Commandments and statutes contain either a curse or a blessing: therefore they may be broken abd subject to a curse; or they
can be obeyed, and receive a blessing. (Just my thoughts)
Walk in Peace.
______________________________________________by the "gift of grace" (aka mercy) God allows us redemption by "submission" ..
those rebellious against being submissive, receive "subjection" ..
by "free-will" we are submissive ..
"subjection" can not be applied to those who "submit by free-will" (bond servant) ..
those who do not "submit", will receive "subjection" ..
"even the demons must obey Him" ..
as "all power was given to Jesus" ..
thus ALL are under subjection in the end, but God allows us to rebel or submit ..
and gives to us depending on either choice we make ..

Ro 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
It is for me...maybe not for you? One needs to be walking "IN" the Spirit of life to overcome the law of sin and death. I have not seen that evidence in you.. so "your" probably right to reject this promise.________________________________________
The Law of Sin and Death has not been rescinded or annulled: but will be, after the last judgment. People are still sinning, and
people are still dying. However, the "...Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus..." has given us something to embrace. Will not
even the "higher laws that overcome the lower laws", nonetheless, submit to the laws of Creation until their fulfillment?
Beloved, Walk in the Light.
I like your respinse: so don't think I am being facetious.
Now: is there a Law of Creation to which man is not subject?
Beloved, Walk in the Light.
