      What YOU choose
      is what you get!

Why does a loving God not stop the suffering on earth?
Is it possible that God somehow does not care?
Certainly not, He does care and in fact He wants us to enjoy life
(John 10:10)

      I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you,
      that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing;
      therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;
      Deut 30:19

Why then is there still so much suffering?

      Considering that when God made man He did not make a robot,
      … but He made him a special being with a free will,
      … and God Himself ensured that man’s choice is truly free,
      which also meant that God would never override man’s choice,

The adversary however was quick to test man’s freewill,
… and instead of listening to God, man chose to believe the devil’s lie,
which resulted in man getting into the mess he is in today.

      God on the other hand, reaching out to man in love,
      made a way to reverse man’s situation,
      at the same time not going against His own will.
      Thus, by Jesus’ sinless sacrifice God’s judgement was satisfied,
      … God opened the way for man to choose life through Jesus!

God’s part therefore was done!
The way to God and His blessing, free from all suffering, was complete,
… without having denied or overridden man’s freewill!
However, to live in God’s blessings and protection, free from suffering,
… is not up to God and is not His decision but ours!

      God cannot and will not go against our freewill,
      … but He will always respond to our decisions,
      and if our decision is to open the door to Him,
      … then He has the right to get involved in our lives,
      and to deal with the situations we may find ourselves in!
