I am a firm believer in free will--the God-given majesty of choice! I believe everyone is given a chance to choose to do good or evil, just like Adam and Eve in the Garden. You can choose--you don't have to be evil! God didn't make Adam and Eve fall--they fell because of their lust for evil--they chose to fall, for the power of knowledge, education, both good and evil--because they lusted for power, more than human power, the Devil's power, to be as gods--or literally, like the devils or demons or the fallen angels of Satan--anything for power.--And knowledge represents power, education in both good and evil.
So the two most perfect people the world has ever known, living under the most ideal conditions that ever existed, were dissatisfied because they lacked one thing--more power! Satan himself had been Lucifer, the Light-Bearer, the mightiest of all Archangels, next to God Himself--but he was not satisfied! He wanted to be God! Adam and Eve did not have to fall--they chose to, because of their lust for power! Judas didn't have to fall--he chose to! You don't have to-the decision is yours. It's up to you!
My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.
On September 24, 2023, I had an accident and broke the bone of the tip of my left elbow. A boy ran in front of my motorbike less than 2 meters from me as I was leaving home. I stopped suddenly and my front tire slid on the sandy concrete road which caused me to fall. I did not hit the boy. On October 18th I had surgery done on my elbow. The doctor put in titanium rods to hold my bones together. The entire procedure including an entire week in the hospital was roughly $4000 USD. This was done in the Philippines where my wife and I have been living since June this year.
It would be a super blessing to us if any of the visitors of this website can help us cover this expense!
