Satan’s Cup Refused

   And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.
   Mark 15:23

What if Christ had accepted that cup (and that is to imagine the impossible)?

Then, with a befuddled brain, he could not have prayed for the soldiers who were waiting to nail him to the cross. Then those seven great sayings on the cross would never have been uttered.

Then his obedience would at last have been broken and all would have been lost.

...Adam had disobeyed knowingly, with all his senses clear. The ‘last Adam’ must obey willingly and with a clear mind.
