We as humans are blessed creatures. We have the ability to freely decide what we want to do with our lives. We can choose to be charitable or deceitful, it is our choice in how we live life. Some choose to follow the one true God who created all, while some are misguided by false gods and way of living. Naturalism is one of these types of lifestyle.
