The Choice

What is our purpose? You say you don't know?

Will you become a new creature or just stay below?

Were you just a mistake that occurred in some slime?

Do we change each generation; or is man same all the time?

Are you here just to live and then just to die?

Do you keep God's commandments? Do you even think to try?

Will you just live your life for all the fun you can find?

Why not rather feed the hungry or give sight to the blind?

One faith, or another, is set before you.

You should read the bible to find what to do.

To believe is the answer. The judgment is true.

Life eternal with Jesus or death - now, you choose?

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. 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 mayest 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.
