How did you and I get separated from our Creator?
Did we have any choice or fault in the matter?
Did we become separated as a result of our freewill choices?
The answer is "NO" we didn't have any choice at all!
Our separation was caused by Adam's sin.
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Adam "may" have had a choice, but you and I do NOT.
Wherefore, as by one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
If we had NO CHOICE about our separation from Yahweh (we were predestined to sin), do we have a choice about our reuniting with Him (our salvation)?
