if you’ve already been told what not to do, if you’ve been already given a precaution ahead of time, if you’ve already been given advice beforehand, and if you’ve already heard a number of stories of testimonies of people’s experience heading down that path, why do you still do it? do you want to feel the pain in your own skin? do you wanna be all tough, going through all that ‘hard stuff’?
everything is simple yet we make is so complicated.
adam and eve were told, ‘hey, don’t eat from that tree.’ and what did they do? they ate from that tree. it’s like, T_T. really? because they chose to disobey, look at our world now. do you think, that if they knew all this was gonna happen, they would still do it? that all this crap and junk would come in the world and people would suffer? but they didnt. but they were told, you shall surely die.
im just saying that us, people of the 21st century, we’re more prepared. we got equipment. we got the Bible- stories and examples of people who did stuff and the reactions and consequences that came along with that, and we got history too. i mean, i dont know about you, with all these back ups and stuff to refer to, is it really necessary for us to experience again what they already went through?
For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:14)
above all things, we got the holy spirit guys. so i dont know. we’re like fully loaded with equipment and what not. we got everything we need. so what else. the rest is up to us.
