The Word

Genesis 3. 17-21 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

“Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

“Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

Free Will

The fact that many men have conceived the idea of a will argues for its existence.   The very willingness to try to deny the will shows man has one. To deny man has a will is an easy and cheap shot against God i.e. and tries to blame Him for man missing heaven.

It is at the point of little things

That futures often meet.

The trail that’s chosen may soon decide,

The condition of the feet.


The very act that looked so small,

At the moment of decision.

Can turn the course, just enough,

To miss, Oh, perfect precision.


Don’t think that thoughtless acts or words,

Will always come to naught.

They change so much, in so little time,

And stay forever to haunt.


It’s the tiny thing done to a friend,

That will cause a friendship to end.

While a few kind words may win a foe,

Thus causing enmities to mend.


The twig that’s bent grows a bent tree;

A cause always brings a result.

Watch the little variations, they can be,

The awful, final, eternal fault.
