9/11



When your will to do, and be authentic is suppressed, you are in bondage or enslaved against your “will.” God gave us “free will” to pursue our dreams and live a life of joy. He did not give “free will” for us to hurt, harm, or make His earth a living hell. He gifted us with the ability to think, make decisions, and take actions based on what is in our heart. His hope for all mankind was that we accept Jesus Christ as Savior, then live accordingly. Some did, and some did not.

James 1:13-14 KJV
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

On this day, year 2001, men used their “free will” too exercise an attack against our nation. Over 3,000 people died that day, and since that dreadful day, thousands have died from health problems or suicide...

It is impossible for us to fully understand the dynamics of a holy God molding and shaping the will of man. Scripture is clear that God knows the future (Matthew 6:8; Psalm 139:1-4) and has total sovereign control over all things (Colossians 1:16-17; Daniel 4:35). The Bible also says that we must choose God or be eternally separated from Him. We are held responsible for our actions (Romans 3:19; 6:23; 9:19-21). How these facts work together is impossible for a finite mind to comprehend (Romans 11:33-36).

We understand the difference between right and wrong. We know that lying, cheating, stealing and murder, are against the teachings of Our Father. Free Will is God’s gift to humans, living a life that models Jesus, is our gift to God. Remember..

“Free will” carried many a soul to hell, but never a soul to heaven.”
