Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Thanks to the Holy Spirit for opening my heart and mind to receive and understand (if only darkly) the truth of His Word. This "free-will" thing began in the Garden of Eden. It began as an idol and has only increased in idol status since then. Since Scripture has plainly declared that our Lord is the only One who possesses a free will-to do as He pleases-man has tried to grant himself that same ability by simple declaring it to be so. The wicked one said to Adam and Eve that they would be like God-with accompanying free will-when they disobeyed Him and ate the forbidden fruit. It is the same spirit and quest for autonomy that drives a man to lie to himself, believing that he is the "captain of his soul" and can determine his own fate.

Parts 2,3,& 4 up next.

Good points Darrel...it's true, those who hold to free will theology have trouble understanding everything else after that; their doctrine is a mess from the start, so nothing else makes sense to them.
