Often it seems like men are. But Acts 13:29 ("when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down...") describes life as it really is, from the ultimate perspective. People think and act with freedom of choice, but God makes sure His will is carried out. Is that hard to understand? So is almost everything that is around us! We have not been given the ability to fathom many of life's mysteries, but we have been gifted with the privilege of knowing and enjoying God on a fantastic level. The Bible is the door and path to the most marvelous relationship ever imagined by the human heart.
