Misinformed choice

To the Editor:

In response to Dave Sippel’s letter (“Make informed choice,” Aug. 19), there was a bit of what I feel was misinformation.

God always has kept His end of the bargain and never has changed. It was mentioned that Job’s situation was because of a bet between God and the devil. That is a huge stretch. God never promised a perfect, easy life – see John 16:33 – but He does promise everlasting life.

I’m not sure which Bible the writer references, but I have yet to find a version in which Jesus is angry with a leper for asking to be healed in the book of Mark. God created us with free will and ability to make our own choice, and He also sent His son to take our sins to the cross so we could live eternally with Him in heaven. For me, that’s an easy choice.
