Ever Played the game “This or that”? You are to choose between two options, the closer the relation, the harder it is to make a choice since “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”
It is so much easier to stay on the fence and we still do rather than choose. But, while there are things we can relativise, It is foolishness to think we would never have to pick sides.
The gift of Choice has been given to Everyman by God, even if many have problems utilizing it. However, we must understand, there are consequences to the use of our Choice.
It’s Often been said, you can halve a cake, and eat a half, that way You’d have your cake and eat it too. That is a logical meaning that serves no purpose. You still can’t regain the half you ate.
We may try to rationalize it, but we know We can’t have our cake and eat it too. However, the fear of Loosing the cake, and the Cravings to taste the cake keeps us in a constant internal war. It’s like “I wanna be saved, but I gotta stay cool too”.
It would be cool if We could love the Lord and still go do our thing, but it doesn’t work like that. The World will remain unapologetic in its thoughts, feelings and actions. So, If it’s God you are after, You just can’t serve two masters.
It’s useless to eat your Cake bit by bit in an attempt to “taste and keep it too” You’d eventually eat it all. This is a matter of death and Life. You have to be Black or White. No gray and no Shades of Grey.
