You overlook the blessings of freewill. If we are to enjoy the blessings thereof, we must also be willing to face the consequences when the priviledge is abused. In the US we may own guns for our protection and for putting wild meat on the table. The abuse of that priviledge may be murder. The penalty for abusing the priviledge may cause the offender to be executed. That's the way it works with God. The free will he gives can bring great blessings or very bad consequences. His grace and mercy provides a pardon, however for those who receive it. He's more than fair. BUZSAW B 4 U 2 C Y BUZ SAW. The immeasurable present eternally extends the infinite past and infinitely consumes the eternal future.
