God wants us to choose...
I was passing by this sign the other day and stopped to take a picture of it as it seemed to carry with it a deeper message than perhaps the sign posters originally intended.
I told my children at that time that I had no choice but to stop and take a picture of it. My eldest son immediately said, “Dad, you did have a choice”. To that I replied, “Exactly, just as we all have a choice on whether we follow and serve God or not”.
God’s Word validates, quite clearly, the fact that we do indeed have a choice while the core assumption within the false doctrine of T.U.L.I.P. insists very much to the contrary, that we have no choice at all.
Reformed Theology which embraces the five points of T.U.L.I.P. has indeed reformed theology by preaching a gospel other than what God has given us in His Word. This is an abomination in the sight of God. He wants us to freely choose to love and serve Him.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15
See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. Deuteronomy 30:15-20
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8-9
