This post is about how the choices humans make day by day define us, shape our characters and testify of what and Whom we believe in. The wicked tried to hijack the word "choice" to make it mean a synonym for sin so that people would be fooled. But good people are not fooled when euphemisms are substituted in for the words GOD used in the Bible.
I want to write here two of the choices GOD gave us humans:
"And THE LORD GOD commanded man saying, 'of every tree of the garden thou mayest eat freely; but of the tree of of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die". Genesis 2:16-17, KJV
"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 mayst 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 30:19-20; KJV
Words of R.J Rushdoony: "The godly man recognizes that he has been called and chosen by God. He is therefore under authority. His choices have been made by God and set forth in Scripture. The Ten Commandments spell out God's choice and law. Man has no free option. One way is sin, and the other faith, obedience, and blessing. The godly man rejoices in God's Word and choice, and it is his joy that God "shall choose our inheritance for us" (Ps. 47:4).
Our choices thus reveal whether or not we are chosen by God or self-chosen. The self-chosen say, "My will be done," whereas the chosen of God, as C. S. Lewis saw, will say to God, "Thy will be done." Your life reveals your choices. What are they? "
Another choice that Christians make is whether to obey the Great Commission as JESUS spoke it and it was recorded in the Bible, as written :
"And JESUS came and spake unto them saying, 'all power is given unto me in heaven and earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in The Name of THE FATHER [GOD] and of THE SON [JESUS] and of THE HOLY Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28:18-20, KJV.
To add to the commandment of GOD to tell other people about the saving knowledge of JESUS are these words:
"If any man see his brother [fellow human] sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and HE shall give life for them that sin not unto death.there is a sin unto death; I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin and there is a sin not unto death [also]. We know that whosoever is born of GOD sinneth not; but he that is begotten of GOD keepeth himself [free from sin] and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we [the believers in JESUS the Messiah] are of GOD ; and the whole world liveth in wickedness. And we know that The Son of GOD is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know HIM that is true , and we are in HIM that is true, even HIS Son JESUS Christ. This is the true GOD and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves [away] from idols. " I John 5:16-21, KJV.
I choose to obey GOD and to live by HIS commandments. So I publish this blog and others as a testimony of the choices I make and WHOM I believe in. I am a born again believer in the LIVING LORD JESUS and I obey His commandments and follow where HE leads me. I choose not to obey the devil or follow the devil. I do not pray for those committing the sin unto death because as this scripture indicates they have been condemned to hell by GOD and I am not one to question GOD's right to do that.
*Footnote: R.J.Rushdoony is or was a Pastor that founded Chalcedon in California but I think he is deceased for several years. His sermons were written down and I read them on occasion.
For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, and also on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole.
I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer/blogger/illustrator/photographer for words that WORK, and also for Tapestry of LIFE,and previously also for Life Media & Publishing [when I was actively trying to build a publishing company ]; and just-for-fun photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
