One represents the spiritual, the other the material.
Between the eternal, and the temporal
One choice offers a life of peace and purpose.
The other choice leads to a life of self-centeredness and emptiness.
God's Word makes the choice clear:
"The person who vacillates [between faith and unbelief] is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind; for let not that individual be supposing that he will receive anything from the… Lord, [being] a dubious, undecided man, vacillating in all his ways." (James 1:6b-9 – Wuest Translation)
Actually, you and I have already made our choice — either by:
Eternal life leading to heaven, or eternal death leading to hell.
In making decisions of a spiritual nature, the battlefield is not the intellect, but the will.
