 Christ Or Satan

We can choose to follow Christ of choose not to follow Christ. To choose not to follow Christ is to choose to follow Satan. So these are the only choices, Christ or Satan.

How you choose to live your life will come back to you- The Boomerang Theory.
Option 1: To follow Christ will exemplify love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. And will you show these things, these things show up in your life. For instance, if you love someone and show kindness to someone, the boomerang theory says they are likely to love you and show kindness back to you.
Option 2: To choose Satan means you will show adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, sedition, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like. And the boomerang theory will show here as well. If you hate someone and show anger to them, they are likely to show anger and hate toward you.
Just because one is not a Christian does not mean you are automatically filled with these traits of option 2. And it would be naive to say all Christians demonstrate all the traits of option 1. However Christ fills you with the tendency to show the traits from option 1. And again, to not choose Christ is to choose Satan. And Satan likes to implant your brain with the traits from option 2.
The choice is yours!
