It's going to be interesting to see how people react to this question....

 

If you don't take ownership, you can't change it....

Actually you do peep....    you made the decision to let God have control, but God didn't require that of you......   it was your personal decision to do so......    he also will not keep that relationship unless you want it that way.....    so in a very real sense you do have ownership of your life.....   you just decided to share it with God.....   but that is your own decision each day.

It is called.......... a choice.

I would have to disagree somewhat with that statement.  For some of us, our lives were shaped in the beginning by circumstances beyond our control.  I realize that some will use the lemon statement - if life hands you lemons, make lemonade - but some things cannot be changed so easily, just by making a pat statement.

I don't think I know what you are saying.Are you saying it is not your fault for not believing?

No, I was referring to the original statement:

 

"There's a hefty price for taking ownership of your life....If you don't like your life, it's your fault!"

 

For some of us, the deck was stacked against us before we could make informed decisions about our lives.  I wasn't referring to the choice to believe in God.
