Freedom To Choose

Freedom of Religion: says you are free to believe what you choose.
However, when you make a choice it also comes with consequences, you are responceable and accountable for the choice's you make, also by not making a choice you have in fact made a choice to not choose.

The Atheist - the word atheist originated from the Greek ἄθεος (atheos), meaning "without god" in a broad sense, it is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities, In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities or No God.... Jesus Christ or any other so called God's" Buddha, Allah, Mohammed and others.

The Agnostic - comes from 2 Greek words "a" meaning "without"; and gnosko, meaning "I know" So Agnosko means "without knowledge"
or "I know not."
An agnostic does not deny the existence of God and heaven but holds that one cannot know for certain whether or not they exist.
So in a broad sence they have knowledge in that they do not deny the existence of God and Heaven, but in a narrower sense, this knowledge they have is leaving them void and without or to smart for there own good.

The Unbeliver - A person who is an Unbeliver has not yet seen their need for Christ, so one is said to be Lost or Unsaved, they are away from God because of their sin, and are accountable for their actions.

The Beliver - Is a person who has put their Faith and Trust in Jesus by Asking, Believing and Receiving Jesus Christ, as their personal savior and what was done for them by Him on the Cross.

The difference- The difference between a person who has trusted Jesus and one who has not.

The one who has trusted is saved through faith in Christ and has been forgiven of their sins, because of their belief or believing in Jesus and the finished work of the cross. So Now their SIN is accounted for by Jesus, who paid our sin debt.

The other person who has not yet trusted in Jesus is still acountable for their sins. In making no choice yet to be forgiven by God's Grace, they are Unsaved, Lost and are an Unbeliver.

This beliving OR unbeliving issue is over a matter called SIN. God's word in the Holy Bible ROMANS 3:23 says For ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God.

Dear friend, this makes us guilty before God and accountable for SIN, Sin separates us from a Holy God.We do have the freedom to choose,
it's called (freewill) God want's us to exercise our freewill to make a choice. And of our own freewill, to choose to open our heart to recieve The Gospel from (The Holy Word of God) The Death, The Burial, and The Resurrection, of His Son Jesus Christ and to believe in Jesus as our personal savior for which He died on the cross to save all who will accept and believe.

        Heaven       or          Hell

The absolute biggest deseptation is believed by lots of people and that is we are just like any of the other animals, so when we die that's it, nothing happens they put you in the ground and that's all there is to it, you are just dead.
This kind of thinking is a comfort to people who don't want to think about a here after, they only want to live in the moment as if there is no tomorrow, no hear after and no issues to face at some point down the road, after all you just die and that's it, so they say.

One of the next biggest deseptations is how could a Kind Loving God, a God of Love and Mercy and Forgiveness send someone to Hell and punishment forever?
All things were made by him and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3

Heaven is a created place and just as Heaven was created also created is a place called Hell.

Origin of hell
(1) Never intended for people.
(2) Created and prepared for Satan and his angels.
(3) Man chose and still chooses to sin and rebell and ignore God.
(4) The penalty for sin is death (eternal separation from God in Hell)

Nature of God
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).
God is Love.He is so loving that He sent, His own Son to die, and pay the penalty for our sin, so that we can avoid this place called Hell, and have the assurance of Heaven, Sins Forgiven and Eturnal Life, through the gift of is Son Christ Jesus.

God doesn't send anyone to Hell ( Think about it? )
It is by our own choosing to refuse and ignoring God and the Gift of Jesus, His Son by our attitude and action.
God gave, and most don't take Him up on it!

The truth is No one in Hell will truely be able to blame God, and here's why.
It's their own choice. He doesn't send anyone to Hell, they themselves are why they are there.
" You can Believe and Recieve OR You can Doubt and Do Without."

Everyone has the choice to choose to repent, to stop ignoring God in attitude and action, by accepting His salvation through His Son and yielding to His leadership of His Holy Spirit.

Heaven - Is a literal place reserved for the believer, the saved of all mankind who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Hell - Is also a literal place it was created for the devil and his angel's, reserved for the unbeliever the nonsaved of all mankind who have chosen not to believe and put saving faith in Christ Jesus.

Everyone also has the choice to choose and NOT repent, to continue ignoring God by attitude and action, and by NOT accepting His salvation through His Son. You have by your own choosing, NOT chosen to accept and believe, and there for will face the consequences as an unbeliever.

Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

The Bible in scripture speaks of a literal lake of fire, and hell. But some find this hard to reconcile with biblical teachings about God’s love and forgiveness, and His grace. They consider it to be excessive for this God of love to send people to hell forever. After all, they reason, how can 60,70 or 80 years of sin merit an eternity of torment and punishment?

This reveals an error in ones understanding of sin and God’s nature. If man’s eternal destiny were weighing in a counterbalance his bad deeds verses his good, then this might have some merit. And If hell and punishment were part of somekind of system that would allow a person to repay the Lord for their sin, then years versus eternity would seem way out of balance. Or If God decided who goes to heaven or hell, we would have cause to call His fairness into question.

But hell is a reality, because we have a sin issue and an incompatibility problem. God’s holiness cannot coexist with man’s wickedness and sinfull nature. And no amount of time spent away from His presence could ever change that.

The rules that determine who goes to heaven and hell are established by God’s holy nature. It's hard for us to grasp the awesomeness of His power and of His glory and the holiness of almighty God.

The only solution to this dilemma we face with sin, is for the Lord to change us, this is the very reason Jesus came and died— He who knew no sin became sin that through Him we could be saved.
Those who accept Jesus’ death as the payment for their sin are made holy and His righteousness is imputed and accounted unto them. That is why we who believe in the Savior are referred to as saved or children of God, and the Holy Spirit dwells within us. At salvation, there is a fundamental change in our nature, Old things are past away and behold all things are made new in Christ and we become one with Jesus Christ through His blood.

Those who reject this free gift of salvation will go to a place called hell. It's because from their rejection of God's forgiveness their nature is still incompatible with the God of heaven. How many sins they have comitted or the severity of their sins does not send them to hell. The problem is and what sends them to hell, is that they have not accepted Jesus as their personal savior, they have not been forgiven, cleansed of their sins through the blood of Jesus, and there for remain unholy before God.

People in hell will be forever separated from God and all that is good. Hell is a real, literal place. We do accept the Bible’s teaching that people do go to hell and after the Great White Throne Judgment they will be cast into the lake of fire to remain there for eternity.

We believe this because of the sacrifice Jesus made. You see He knew that Hell was real, that is why He went to such extreme measures to pay the price for our sins on the cross, so humanity could avoid this place called hell. His Love was so much, His belief was so deep, and His mission was so clear, that it drove Him to leave heaven's throne, His throne in glory and come to this world to die an excruciating death for those who would believe and trust in Him.

So how will you respond? You have freewill, and a freedom to choose? The Love of Christ and His desire to rescue you from hell is what motivated Him to give His life for you.
If you have not already made the choice and accepted His sacrifice on your behalf, we encourage you to do so.
Jesus wants to save you and cleanse you of your sin and to give you a brand-new life that's only found in Him. Confess your sin, your wrongdoing to the Lord Jesus, ask Him to forgive you, and invite Him into your Heart and Life. Then you can be sure of spending eternity in the presence of God In a place prepared for you called Haven.

If you are already a believer a follower of Jesus Christ, then take this opportunity to let His sacrifice for you, motivate you to reach out to others with what Jesus did for you, always pray for unbelievers who are without Christ. Ask God for His help with opportunities to share about a new life in Christ. A man that winneth souls is wise;

Freedom to choose, freedom of choice, May you make your choice Today.
