There is a lot of clover in my back lot this year and the bunnies have really been spending a lot of time there. Yesterday three of them spent a long while out there in the rain. They seemed to be having a good time and later two of them played chase while the other one watched. Hopefully there will be a long enough break in the rain today so I can mow before all this grows any taller.
This in itself would be worthy of exploration if such were possible without it becoming just another battleground. I've heard one pastor touch upon this but he mostly raised questions which he never got around to offering any possible answers for. Why is it that two (or more) very similar people can hear a sermon and one is fully convicted, repents and is born again while the other(s) are not? Why do some people spend their lives in a church where the Gospel is preached and are never born again yet a career criminal on his umpteenth sentence in prison hears the Gospel once and is born again? Why are some people rebellious from an early age and even tho they know the Word, say they want to follow Jesus, but continually choose the world instead? Why do we see one person get saved and then their whole family saved shortly after but then other families where the whole family turns against the one saved? Why do see the Gospel ridiculed and rejected to quickly here but in some parts of the world the people willingly give up all to follow Jesus? Many other questions could be considered but all too often when such is brought up it seems trite answers are quickly put forth and the subject changed or the one asking finds their faith, or even salvation, questioned for asking such questions. Why do we think we can, or must, know everything when there is no record of any mere man having ever achieved such?
