Thought for the Day II

"The same way that God allows you and I to make decisions to go this way or that way, to stay in England or to move to America, to get married or stay single, to go out to eat or to go home to eat; whatever it is that you enjoy about having and operating in freewill is the same freedom that those without Christ operate in. It is the same freewill that you enjoy and praise God for that others use to do wicked things and fight against God.

Catch this, because this is one of those statements that makes sense and teaches your inner man something new. For God to avert the wicked from their wickedness, He would have to avert the Christian from their love and adoration for Him, also. In a world, where the freewill of mankind is the modus operandi that all of us operate under, the question shouldn’t be, "How could a loving God allow such wicked things happen?" The question should be, "With the life that God has given me, and living in an appointed time such as this, what am I going to do with what God has allowed to happen?"
