God does not create anything that's flawed.  When He created you as a born-again person, you were not flawed.  You're a perfect spirit.

Some people say ... "God can do anything."  To this, I say, "No He can't."  One thing that He cannot do is lie.  Another is ... He cannot change.  He's the same today, tomorrow, and forever as He was yesterday.

He can't force you to do anything.  He always leads ... He never pushes.  If you're being pushed of forced into something, go back and pray about it ... because it's not of God.

Earlier I said that God didn't create anything flawed.  You might say, "Well, yes, He did.  He created Satan, the devil."  God did not create Satan.  He created Lucifer who was one of the highest of the angels in Heaven.  Matter of fact, he was in charge of all the worship there.  Lucifer became Satan by his own doing.

God didn't create him flawed.  He gave Lucifer more capabilities than the arch angels, Michael and Gabriel.  Lucifer took advantage of this and messed up.

Ezekiel 28:12b-18,19 NLT ... "You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and exquisite in beauty.  You were in Eden, the Garden of God.  Your clothing was adorned with every precious stone -- red carnelian, pale-green peridot, white moonstone, blue-green beryl, onyx, green jasper, blue lapis lazuli, turquiose, and emerald --- all beautifully crafted for you and set in the finest gold.  They were given to you on the day you were dreated.  I (God) ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian cherub.  You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire.  You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you.  Your rich commerce led you to violence and you sinned.  So I banished you in disgrace from the mountain of God.  I expelled you, O mighty guardian, from your place among the stones of fire.  Your heart was filled with pride because of all your beauty.  Your wisdom was corrupted by your love of splendor, so I threw you to the ground and exposed you to the curious gaze of kings.  All who knew you are appalled at your fate.  You have come to a terrible end, and you will exist no more (as Lucifer)."

God gives us the right to choose to go to Heaven or to hell.  He's not forcing us to go either way.  He tells us about each, and gives us the choice ... we choose.

Reverend Robert W. & Mary C. Butler
