About the Book

Choice is not the same as free moral agency. Choice is scriptural, while free moral agency is not. Free moral agency has the connotation that man has the ability to become God. Choice is our decision to allow God to perfect himself in us through the pitfalls of life.

Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward (Job 5:6–7).

About the Author

In his early years James hated the truth. He thrived on living and promoting a lie even though he knew he was wrong. Many times he would argue on behalf of a lie even when evidence of the truth proved him wrong. Like Elymas in Acts 13 there was a mist of darkness that had enshrined both his soul and spirit to the point he would rather defend a lie then to admit to the truth. Then like the Apostle Paul in Damascus reeling from his encounter with the risen Savior, James became a battle ground as a physical spiritual war raged within his corporal body. Instead of grabbing hold of a lie as he had always done, he reached out this time and took hold of the truth. After having been redeemed and set free by the truth of God in Christ Jesus, James then becoming obsessed divine truth as is laid out in scripture, he set out to understand truth concerning the accusations that are being and have been levied against God after disasters and calamities befall nations, cultures, and individuals. His investigation based entirely on the truth and revelation of scripture, has led to a deeper faith, trust and confidence in power of the eternal Godhead.
