The Rope of Free Will
By Ken Blue
I am confident that there are many angry and ignorant souls out there who can’t wait to tell God what they think, or to ask Him questions they know no one but themselves can answer. Rest assured you will have your day, but you won’t get to ask the question. The questions have already been answered.
Every person on earth has been given the same thing, and that one thing is that with which we hang ourselves. It’s a rope called a free will. You see, without a free will to choose, life, love and hate would have no meaning. None of us want to be programed robots or clones without personal freedom of choice. God has made you with the ability to choose. That is what gives meaning to life, and what you use to be saved or lost.
You see, we spend our time blaming others for our unhappiness, but the truth is we do exactly what we want. We make the choices, and we reap the harvest. So, if you are inclined to blame God for your plight, now is the time. You have a free will. You can call Him anything you like, blame Him for everything, and get it off your chest. Now is your day. Use all the rope you like, it will only get tighter.
You could choose to trust and believe God if you wanted to. You could trust Jesus as your Savior if you were so inclined. God made a choice at Calvary. Because He loves you, He chooses to die for you. I pray you will use your free will and accept Christ today. You can, it’s your choice.
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.

Thank you, Pastor Blue. I would entitle this “Why I am pro-choice.” (of course, using that line tongue in cheek) 🙂
