Choices

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I had the pleasure of getting to hear Dr. Eva Olsson speak last night. She is a Holocaust survivor and last night shared many of the experiences that she had during World War II.

She has a really powerful story, and if you'd like to hear more of it, you can visit http://jewishottawa.com/page.aspx?id=221245. 

One the things she said really stuck out to me. 'You can't blame God for the choices man makes.' 

And I've been thinking about it a lot since then. When we were born, we were born with the free will God gave us. We ALL have a free will and are able to make our choices.

We have the option, the power, the choice to act as we will. 

God did not build Auschwitz. People did. 

God did not drive under the influence and hit someone. A person did. 

God is love. He is light. He is good!  1 John 1:5 says 'This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. (NIV)'. 

There is no evil in him. 

We cannot allow ourselves to blame God for what people do. God lets things happen for a reason and he promises to give us enough strength to get through it. (James 1:2-4 & Joshua 1:9)
