Brothers and Sisters!

When Adam and Eve were faced with a choice, either to obey God and inherit eternal life and glory, or to disobey God and inherit death they chose disobedience and death. When the children of Israel rebelled against God, Moses said to them, “Behold, I have set before thee this day life and death, good and evil. If thou wilt hearken to the commands of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to love the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his ordinances, and his judgments; then ye shall live...But if thy heart change, and thou wilt not hearken, and thou shalt go astray and worship other gods, and serve them, I declare to you this day, that ye shall utterly perish...I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: choose thou life, that thou and thy seed may live; to love the Lord thy God, to hearken to his voice, and cleave to him; for this is thy life” (Deuteronomy 30: 15-20 LXX).
