Simple life

Simple life
It's a fantasy idea
To live a simple life
means to live
life with the basics
and enjoy every moment

Simple life
is a dream that eludes us
We have so much
taking our time
our energy
our attention

a life
in each moment
simply live

Breath in, breath out
enjoy the smells
celebrate the colors
thanks God
for his care
Talk to him
as you walk through
each moment

A simple life
is easy
a life
simply lived
in the moment
in God's presence
in thankfulness
in peace
in faith in a great God

THE ANTI FREE-WILL CROWD by steve finnell

The anti free-will crowd is alive and well in the world today. Their position is the those selected for salvation have no free-will. That they are predestined to receive unconditional, irresistible grace, and that it can never be forfeited.

The anti free-will crowd believe that those not selected for salvation do have the free-will to sin and spend eternity in hell.

The anti free-will position is not only not a Scriptural concept; it is also illogical.

POINT ONE: According to Calvinist men do not have free-will to accept Jesus Lord and Savior, however, they have the free-will to:
engage in fornication
be a drunkard
be a homosexual
be an adulterer
be a thief
be a swindler
be an idolater
be a covetous person
be involved in sorcery
be a robber
be a prostitute
be a Satan worshiper

POINT TWO: The anti free-will crowd believe if God selects you for salvation, all you have do is wait for God to saved you. They believe God forces "the selected" to have faith and be saved.

POINT THREE: They believe that no man can seek God.

ALL men can seek God. (Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.)

The writer of Hebrews says that all who come to God must believe that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. If I were a anti free-will advocate I would be more than a little concerned about my belief.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
