So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” John 6:67
After Jesus gave the crowds difficult teachings , many left Christ because they couldn’t handle either the truth or the obedience of truly being a Christian. So Jesus gave his hand picked disciples an opportunity also to leave or discuss their thoughts.
Jesus is expressing the Free Will God has given all of us. Many atheists or skeptics will argue that God doesn’t grant Free Will , however Jesus is clearly offering this , not only to his disciples but everyone. We have a choice whether we want to be in Gods presence or not. God doesn’t force us to do anything!
Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. “We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.” John 6:68-69
Despite all the people falling away from their faith and despite the difficult teachings from Jesus, Peter (who’s name means Rock) would not waver in his faith. He knew that Jesus was the Truth, Life, and Way and the only salvation
You have a choice also! Which will you choose, eternal life with God or total separation from God? You cant have both! Choose wisely because eternity is a long time to be wrong!
