And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32

Freewill

By Louis Rushmore

Nothing should be more obvious than that sound, developed minds are able to make choices; this is called freewill. Dear reader, you freely exercised your willpower and chose to read these words. The fact that you make many choices or decisions daily proves that you have freewill.

Mankind can and must also make religious choices; we have freewill in religion, too. But, these choices are more important than any of the choices we make every day. Choices made in religion affect one's relationship with God. Therefore, making wrong religious choices or failing to realize that God expects one to exercise freewill is very serious. Such mistakes will prevent souls from living with God in Heaven forever, after this life.

Happily, our loving God recorded in the Gospel (New Testament) what choices in religion He desires us to make; God has not left us without guidance. Your friends in the churches of Christ are interested in making the correct religious choices, based on God's teaching in the Bible. May we help you learn more about God's teaching -- so you, too, can more easily make the correct religious choices?

The Bible is filled with references to freewill and religious choices mankind must make. One outstanding example is found in Joshua 24:15. There, Joshua, a famous Old Testament character, made this sober charge to the nation he was leading: ". . . choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served . . . or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." The best choice anyone can make is to serve God!
