Bible Summary. The Bible teaches us that we cannot serve two masters. From a Biblical perspective these two masters are God and the the other one is sin. We cannot serve both. Just like Cain we make a choice of who we serve: sin or God. God gave us free will; He gave us choice. God gave us free will in order for us to freely love Him and worship Him. God has given us freedom of choice, but He truly desires for us to choose Him. See below for Biblical advice and scriptures on freedom of choice.
Freedom To Worship
You Can Serve Only One Master.
The Bible teaches us that we cannot serve two masters. We either serve God or serve sin (things not of God). We cannot choose to serve both. Matthew 6:24 advises us that we cannot chose to serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Cain Had Freedom Of Choice.
Cain made a deliberate choice to kill his brother, Abel. Cain was evil and hated righteousness. This was why he killed his brother. He could not stand to be in the presence of his brother’s righteousness. John 3:12 explains that Cain chose to kill his brother because Abel was righteous and he was not.
1st John 3:12, “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”
God gave us free will; He gave us choice. We were made in His image and God gave us free will in order for us to freely love Him and worship Him. Worshiping God is our purpose and God gave us free will in order for us to fulfill our purpose. Romans 6:16 advises that us that we have free will to make one choice – either disobedience to God or obedience to God.
Romans 6:16, “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
We Have Freedom Of Choice.
The Bible tell us that we must never place anything above God. This is one of the Ten Commandments. We have freedom of choice to follow this commandment or not. God has given us freedom of choice, but He truly desires for us to choose Him. Exodus 20:3 advises us not to put anything above God.
Exodus 20:3, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
