Free Will

If you believe in God than you also believe that the Creator endowed us with free will. Now there are billions of us wandering about on the face of this planet, each of whom has the stuff of free will inside.

Not one of us really knows how to use it.

William's Whimsical Words:

Somewhere in this universe, or in another, or in the places in the Cosmos between universes, God must be laughing.
