The Power Of Choice


Regarding your article on “Body, Soul, And Spirit”. If Adam and Eve were created with a heavenly alignment of body, soul and spirit and were one with the Spirit of God, how could they have disobeyed God in the first place?


Like the angels, Adam and Eve were created with agency, the power to choose their own actions. This includes the power to chose whether to obey or disobey God. Therefore the Heavenly alignment I spoke of was voluntary. When Adam and Eve disobeyed, this alignment was disrupted and will remain so until the rapture of the Church. This is why it’s impossible for natural man to behave in a way that pleases God, believer or not.

After the rapture the heavenly alignment will be restored for raptured believers and neither we nor the angels will have the desire or ability to disobey God ever again. By the end of the Millennium this will be true of all believers of all ages (1 Cor. 15:24).
